NIPSA, Northern Ireland’s largest public sector trade union condemns the threat to workers at the Ports of Belfast and Larne and calls for the threats to be immediately lifted from whoever is making these threats.

Alison Millar, General Secretary NIPSA stated:

“The threat against any worker is not acceptable and must be lifted immediately. All workers, no matter what work they do should be free to go to work and do their job without fear or threat. It is reprehensible that these threats have been made to workers and NIPSA members in both Mid and East Antrim Council and DAERA staff working at the ports who are doing their jobs.

NIPSA therefore calls for the immediate lifting of these threats so that staff can go to work safely and without concern for their safety and the safety of their families.”
