NIPSA the largest public sector trade union in Northern Ireland utterly condemns the brutal attack this morning on the Police Staff member and Part-Time police officer and NIPSA member.  It is clear that this was an attempt on this worker, young mother and her young daughter.  This is a callous and reprehensible act from those in society who offer nothing other than to seek to drag us back to the dark days.  Our member can be assured of the support not just of NIPSA but the whole of the Trade Union Movement.

 Alison Millar, NIPSA General Secretary stated

 “All workers must be allowed to do their job without fear or threat to their lives.  NIPSA and the Trade Union Movement stand alongside all right thinking members of the public who will rightly condemn the actions of those behind this attempted murder.  It is time for those who seek to perpetrate these heinous crimes to stop.  Our member can be assured of our support in the days, weeks and months ahead.”
