Ireland - Cork region unions join forces - January 31, 2016

Twenty unions in Cork City and county have joined forces in a first-of-its-kind initiative to better organise workers and the wider community. The initiative, called One Cork, involves a much deeper level of collaboration between the unions — at workplace and societal levels — to organise, campaign, educate, train, and communicate with workers, their families and the wider community. The work of One Cork will focus on a number of areas, including organising workers into trade unions on a collaborative basis and communicating workers’ rights more effectively. The pilot will be replicated in Belfast before being extended.
