“Today’s judgement by the ECJ is disappointing but not at all surprising. During the Services Directive debate those of us that campaigned against the Directive highlighted the fact that so called worker protections contained within the document would not stand up in the ECJ.  We have today, unfortunately, been proven correct.

 

“It was  argued that Irish Ferries could and would happen again under the provisions of the Services Directive.  We were assured by proponents of the amended Directive it would not.  The race to the bottom has continued and threatens the terms and conditions of every worker in Ireland. This is a cause for concern for all of us and is particularly worrying in Ireland as it has and will lead to tensions between Irish and migrant workers.

 

"The government needs to get to grips with this issue, not least by introducing legislation to protect the rights of temporary agency workers. There must be equality at work.
