Union Matters

Yesterday, the UNI Europa Women’s Committee – Area 1 (UK & Ireland unions) met in CWU Ireland’s head office in Dublin to discuss, amongst other important matters, Mentoring; Women in the Movement; The Future World of Work; Attracting & Retaining Women within the Engineering & Technology Sectors; Worklife Balance; and Working Hours Regulations.

CWU executive member Julia Upton reports: “On the basis of these discussions, the Committee was extremely keen in particular to demonstrate its support and solidarity to the CWU, and our Openreach members, in achieving a successful outcome to the “Our Hours” Campaign.

“And CWU Ireland general secretary Steve Fitzpatrick also joined the Committee in extending cross-union solidarity.”
