Workers signing up

On the morning of Friday, 11 April members of EWPG visited the car parks at Queen Street, Castle Place and Wellington Place. Our mission was to increase awareness of the proposals being put forward by Roads Service in relation to car parking, and to highlight the likely implications for workers.

The response was incredible, with everyone being receptive to our message. So much so, that we succeeded in collecting 600+ signatures on our petition forms within the space of 90 minutes. We were also greatly encouraged by the fact that no fewer than 7 politicians turned up to show their solidarity with the town's workers, while apologies and messages of support were received from a number of others.

We are also indebted to the Fermanagh Council of Trade Unions for their assistance on the day and for their continued support with our campaign.

This was an extremely worthwhile exercise and had a re-energising effect on our group. Please continue to check this site for news of further activities.
