We also have a significant number of members working outside Dublin in areas such as Kilkenny, Cork, Limerick, Waterford, and Dundalk.In addition to protecting and improving our members interests and terms and conditions of employment we represent our members interests at a national level through the Irish Congress of Trade Unions.

What we do

Work carried out by the Union includes negotiating pay claims, defending members' rights and maintain staff posts. We are also active in defending the interests of individual members. Issues such as, clarifying entitlements to maternity leave, holiday pay, parental leave, job-sharing and bereavement. In some instances it could be a more serious problem, discrimination, harassment or unfair dismissal.We have an open democratic structure and are run by members for the benefit of members.
