March to support striking Dublin dockers


The SIPTU strikers at MTL in Ringsend are still holding out against the giant Peel Ports Group, and are asking YOU to join their demonstration on Monday August 24th. This is a strike for all of us - it's about saying no to wage cuts and job losses in a very profitable firm.

MTL have brought in scabs to break the strike and have employed the ex-SAS 'security' firm Control Risks to intimidate strikers.

With enough support we can beat them. Solidarity is our strongest weapon.The big news of the last week is the possibility of international solidarity action by European dockers.

Dockers’ unions in Britain are threatening to blacklist vessels operated by Peel Ports’ subsidiary BG Freight Line and to request colleagues in Antwerp, Rotterdam and Hamburg to refuse to work its ships in solidarity with the MTL strikers.

On Monday next (August 24th) the Dublin Port Workers Support Group will be holding our third march to the terminal. This time a delegation of Belfast dockers have promised to come, so we hope to have a good crowd to welcome them.

Meet at 10.30am at either
Ray's Shop, Sean Moore Road, Ringsend
Seabank bar, East Wall Road

We will join up at the East Link bridge and then march together to support the strikers at the MTL depot.
