Supporting the seven striking electricians at St. James’s Hospital Dublin. Locked out after putting in place safety measures.

via TEEU union “Their only crime was to lock electrical panels to prevent unqualified personnel from accessing the panels and thus interfering with the electrical equipment, which was a potential danger to the electricians, other employees and patients at the Hospital”, TEEU General Secretary Eamon Devoy said today. “Our members took these safety measures to ensure that they had safe systems of work and their colleagues had a safe place of work consistent with Health and Safety legislation.”
