Sinn Féin Councillor Conor D. McGuinness is set to address a public meeting hosted by the Cost of Living Coalition Waterford. The meeting takes place at 7:45 on Thursday 1st September in the Tower Hotel.
The Cost of Living coalition has been established to campaign for measures to ease the burden of spiralling costs that are facing workers and families. Soaring rents, energy price hikes, back to school costs, increases in the prices of food and essential items, coupled with a deepening housing crisis and little in the way of wage increases – these issues need to be addressed urgently.
The coalition is comprised of Sinn Féin and several political parties of the left, trade unions, students organisations and advocacy groups working with those in need.
McGuinness will address the meeting along side People Before Profit TD Paul Murphy and SETU Student’s Union president Patrick Curtin.
The Cost of Living Coalition is supported by Access for All Ireland, Dublin Council of Trade Unions, Dublin Colleges Branch TUI, ESB Retired Staff Association, Housing and Homeless Coalition, Ireland Senior Citizens’ Parliament, Irish Congress of Trades Unions, People Before Profit, RTE Retired Staff Association, Right to Change, Sinn Féin, Socialist Party, SPARK, The Rural Ireland Organisation, UCD Students’ Union, Union of Students in Ireland, UNITE Dublin Area Activist Committee, UNITE Irish Life Branch, Thomas Pringle TD, Joan Collins TD, Catherine Connolly TD, Waterford Council of Trade Unions.
