Sinn Féin spokesperson for Foreign Affairs, Trade and Brexit, and all-Ireland Spokesperson on Workers Rights David Cullinane TD has launched a document outlining the party’s position on workers rights and the need for legislation to protect those rights.

Deputy Cullinane said:

“In the past year two of my Bills on workers rights were passed at second stage by the Dáil and are now in committee.
