Come join One Galway at their official launch for an evening of open discussion featuring worker testimony and proposals to build a collaborative community campaign to fight exploitation and improve workers’ conditions.

Workers everywhere – across all sectors and professions – face casualisation, exploitation and vulnerability on a daily basis, which adversely impacts households, communities and wider society.

Precarious work leads to precarious lives. There is an urgent need for unions and communities to work together to address this issue for the sake of this generation and the next.

The guest speaker will be Senior Lecturer at the University of Limerick Dr. Michelle O’Sullivan, whose expertise in precarious work focuses on wage setting and public policy in low wage jobs. Dr. O’Sullivan co-led a team of researchers from the KBS to undertake the first study on zero hours contracts in Ireland as commissioned by the Irish government.

Her current research interests are on zero hours work, government policy on working hours, working time schedules of retail workers and freelance work.

Join the fight for decent jobs, wages, and a fairer society.

Complimentary refreshments will be served following the discussion.
