In response to the recent violence and unrest in Dublin, workers are gathering in the city centre this afternoon to show their solidarity, reports RTE.
The Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) has called on the workers in the city to assemble at the GPO on O’Connell Street at 1 pm.
The ICTU has also urged the employers in Dublin city centre to allow their employees to attend the demonstration of solidarity during their lunch breaks, if possible.
“We are calling on workers working in the city centre to assemble at the GPO to show their solidarity with all the people of the capital and to clearly denounce this violence and riotous behaviour in a solemn and respectful way,” said ICTU General Secretary Owen Reidy, reports RTE.
“We condemn in the strongest terms the unacceptable and outrageous thuggery witnessed on the streets of our capital city and pay tribute to our wonderful gardaí, firefighters, ambulance personnel, local authority workers and our transport workers in how they have responded,” he added, reports RTE.
