Workers at Mulhuddart Community Centre, Dublin 15 — run by Fingal County Council — are paid minimum wage only.  They earn less than CE and TUS scheme workers who they work alongside. They won’t get a Christmas bonus like them either — that was taken away in the recession when the government decided to cut the community sector to bail out the banks.

Pobal, the government agency, doesn’t give community centres enough to fully pay minimum wage — that has to be topped up by the centres. In the case of these workers, surely the Council must step in to ensure workers are treated with dignity and fairness?

Nobody can live or raise a family on minimum wage. These workers are caretakers, admin, catering and cleaning workers. They should be paid fairly. 

Sign the petition calling on Fingal Council to top up the wages in their centres and to pay the workers their Christmas bonus this year.
