Ireland - Contract cleaners ask for preservation of ERO - February 23, 2011

On 24 February contract cleaners organised in the SIPTU union would be handling in a petition signed by 2,000 of their colleagues and their supporters to the EROs Independent Review Committee, calling for the preservation of the Employment Regulation Order (ERO) which protects their pay and conditions of employment. They will be accompanied by the O’Callaghan Davenport Hotel strikers, who are not protected by an ERO. The forced reduction of their minimum wages would anyway not be possible if they were also covered by an ERO (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 4 January 2011).
