Support the Green Isle workers

Statement by the President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton

In a statement the Kildare based President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton expressed support for the striking workers in Green Isle , Naas, Co Kildare who have announced their intention to begin a hunger strike in their almost six-month long dispute. Des Dalton is also Vice President of the Athy/Kildare Branch of SIPTU.

Shop Steward Jim Wyse will commence a hunger strike tomorrow (February 17). If the company continue to refuse to accept the Labour Court recommendations a worker will join the hunger strike on each subsequent Wednesday.

“The workers at Green Isle have fought a lengthy battle to save jobs and to uphold the basic principles of justice in the workplace. Green Isle have refused to engage with the workers or their union the TEEU or accept the recommendation of the Labour Court that the workers they dismissed be reinstated without loss of pay. Instead they have used scab labour in an attempt to break the will of the workers and their union.

“The Green Isle workers have been forced to take the grave decision to embark on a hunger strike and it is the duty of all workers to rally to their support. Green Isle products should be boycotted and the general workforce at the plant must now come out in support of their fellow workers and bring this dispute to a head. No right won by working people has been gifted from above but has only come as a result of organised struggle. A class war is being waged on the working people of Ireland and it is time to fight back.” Des Dalton said.
