Target Express workers should be commended

The ex-Target Express Wexford workers who ended their sit-in after eight days should be commended according to local Sinn Féin.  Cllr Anthony Kelly has described the stance the laid off employees took as a strike for workers rights and has wished them all the best in the future.

Cllr Kelly said;

“Wexford Sinn Féin commends the action taken by the ex-Target Express workers in Ardcavan following the appalling conditions surrounding their lay-offs.  They must be particularly commended for continuing their protest after last Friday night’s meeting with the liquidator who could not give them adequate guarantees.  The sit-in they organised was a strike for workers rights and I have no doubt that it has expedited the process of their welfare payments.”

“Cllr Johnny Mythen and myself were glad to be able to offer our full assistance to the workers during their sit-in.  Wexford Sinn Féin would wish the workers all the best in the future.  They have highlighted the glaringly obvious lack of protection for workers when companies cease trading, and in making a stand for their rights they have made this town and county proud.”
