Intervention Needed to Save Red Sky Jobs

– Full support for protests to save jobs – All Red Sky workers should be directly employed to maintain service The disgraceful manner in which workers at Red Sky have been treated is a damning indictment of the politicians in the Assembly.

Through no fault of their own, workers are now left with no guarantee of work. An enquiry should be launched into the allegations of overcharging by management at Red Sky who have placed the company into voluntary administration, but the Minister for Social Development should immediately intervene and instruct the Housing Executive to directly employ all workers at Red Sky. Workers cannot afford to wait any longer!

Housing maintenance was once carried out by workers directly employed by the Housing Executive before the service was privatised. Privatisation enables  companies such as Red Sky to profit from public services through paying low wages and eroding terms & conditions of workers.

Red Sky workers deserve the full support of the entire trade union movement and should put pressure on the Alex Atwood, Minister for Social Development, and the rest of the Stormont parties to intervene and guarantee the jobs of workers who have done nothing to deserve such treatment.

Our full support for your protests to defend your jobs!

Yours in solidarity,

Tommy Black (East Belfast)
