Posted by franklittle in media, Media and Journalism, Trade Unions.

From the always imaginative Australian trade union movement, a two minute YouTube video entitled,

What have Unions ever done for us?

With apologies to Monty Python.

Also good, if a little more low brow.

Here’s a bit more:

The Dublin Council of Trade Unions, in conjunction with the Youth Committee of the ICTU and in co-operation with the Health trade unions, wishes to inaugurate a ‘Campaign for a Decent Public Health Service’.

The Campaign hopes to bring together those who work in the Health Service and their trade unions, with patients’ advocates, Health and Hospital campaigners, concerned Health professionals, community and voluntary organisations, the trade union movement in general and the general public to demand a civilised Health Service.

We hope to open with a large Public Meeting on 11th February:

Public Meeting

6.00 p.m.
Monday 11th February 2008
Liberty Hall, Dublin 1.

Janette Byrne, Patients Together
Conor MacLiam, husband of Susie Long
Dr. Christine O’Malley, Former President IMO
Liam Doran, General Secretary, Irish Nurses Organisation
Kevin Callinan, National Secretary, IMPACT
Louise O’Reilly, National Nursing Official, SIPTU

Come along and help launch a campaign for a civilised Health Service
There will be time for discussion (in short contributions) from the floor
The political parties will be invited.

Note the early starting time (6.00 p.m.). Be there and still be home for the 9 O’Clock News.
