Pension Provision for CE Supervisors is Government’s Duty

14 February 2020

Statement by Senator Ged Nash TD
Spokesperson on Employment and Social Protection

Ged Nash, Labour TD for Louth, spoke out in support of Community Employment Supervisors who are on strike today.

Deputy Nash said: “Labour supports the strike action by CE supervisors today. While we regret that the closure of hundreds of projects around the country will inconvenience many people, this just highlights that the work of CE supervisors is so valuable.

“Fine Gael has failed to seriously engage with CE supervisors. Labour ensured their issues were included in the 2015 Haddington Road Agreement, but the current Fine Gael government has done very little in the meantime.

“Government or public bodies should never ignore the rulings of the Labour Court. The government should meet with SIPTU without delay to work out a way forward for this group of workers who have been badly let down by Fine Gael.”
