Most of my best thinking is done on the train. You get a chance to look at the world outside your window and contemplate. Think of things good or not so good that have happened or indeed can take place.

A minister of state, whose discriminatory comments resulted in a €7,500 compensation award, has claimed his comments were designed to put the victim “at ease.” During an interview for the post of private secretary to Minister John Halligan, the Waterford TD asked the candidate: “Are you a married woman? Do you have children? How old are your children?”

After Ophelia

By Tom Geraghty Thursday, 19th October 2017 | 0 comments
I was struck, in the aftermath of recent storm ‘Ophelia’ by how little public appreciation was expressed to our fellow public servants for the magnificent work done by them in protecting citizens and in providing emergency help. On my own road, Dublin Fire Brigade arrived to deal with a fallen tree in quite horrendous conditions. This pattern was repeated all over the country. For some public servants, staying at home was not an option.

Important Note for Members : Hurricane Ophelia (updated 16th Oct 18:45)

By Roisin McKane & Seán Carabini Sunday, 15th October 2017 | 0 comments
Members should follow the advice of the Government and avoid any non essential travel tomorrow due to Hurricane Ophelia. So far as the Union is concerned that includes travel to work by members. Obviously members involved in absolutely essential services or emergency planning should use their discretion to ensure continuity of such services. Otherwise members are advised to prioritise their own safety. Should any issues arise the Union will support any member who follows this advice.

In 2014, I travelled to Colombia as part of a ‘Justice for Colombia’ delegation that included trade unionists and politicians from Britain and both jurisdictions on this island. I visited a country in which, over the course of a 50 year war, hundreds of thousands of people had been killed, a country in which over 3,000 trade unionists had been murdered for seeking workers’ rights and a country in which human rights defenders faced imprisonment and death.

Address by President Michael D Higgins at the ICTU Biennial

Let me say at the outset how pleased I am to be invited to address you here today. I feel I am among old friends. I have been a member of a trade union for over 50 years. I would like to thank Brian Campfield, of NIPSA, your President, for the invitation to speak here this morning and of course Ms Patricia King, your General Secretary, and I go back some time together - to the times when she represented staff in Leinster House and I was a member of another division of the Oireachtas.
