Bus from Castlebar to trade union march in Dublin

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions is to hold a major national demonstration on Saturday November 27 in Dublin.

Buses will depart from the Court House, Castlebar, at 7.30am and are provided by the local Council of Trade Unions which will bear the cost.

All those supporting the objectives of the march are invited to travel.

For organisational reasons those intending to travel should contact the council by ringing the Centre for the Unemployed at 094 9022814.

The national mobilisation and demonstration has been called in support of congress proposals on alternative ways to tackle the economic crisis, which include a focus on job creation, investment, and growth.

The decision to hold the November 27 demonstration was taken at a recent meeting of the Congress Executive Council. Congress general secretary David Begg has written to all affiliates encouraging their fullest support and participation.

“The figures being talked about for Budget 2011 could truly devastate what is left of the functioning domestic economy,” he warned. “These cuts will throw people out of work.

“Congress believes there is a better, fairer, way to do this and we outlined a number of key proposals in our pre-budget submission yesterday. Simply put we need to extend the period of adjustment and focus on jobs and growth.

"People who want to make their voices heard should come out in force on Saturday, November 27. We cannot afford to wait, because it will be too late to protest on December 8.”
