Christy Moore and Don Baker to play for Greyhound workers


Christy Moore and Don Baker will perform in a concert in support of the locked-out workers in the Greyhound waste disposal company. The concert will take place in Liberty Hall, Dublin, on Saturday 16 August, at 8 p.m.
     The SIPTU Greyhound shop steward, Jesse Hughes, said: “We are delighted that great performers of the status of Christy Moore and Don Baker have decided to support our campaign for justice. The solidarity that has been shown to us from fellow trade unionists and the general public has been overwhelming.
     “It is sure to be a great night, which my colleagues and I are very much looking forward to. This struggle has been very difficult for the workers and our families, so events such as this concert are greatly appreciated.”
     The workers at the Clondalkin plant have been locked out since the 17th of June. The management is attempting to force them to accept wage cuts of up to 35 per cent, and has employed strike-breakers to carry out collections during the dispute.
     Tickets for the concert are €25 and are available from the Central Ticket Bureau, Liberty Hall, 0818 205 205, or on line at www.ctb.ie.
