BT Ireland workers to stage protest at Dublin HQ

Workers at BT Ireland are to stage a protest in Dublin today to highlight what they say is discrimination against the company's workforce in the Republic.

Staff claim management are refusing to treat employees in the Republic and the North equally, despite operating its business on a 32-county basis.

Workers say BT has resisted all attempts by staff operating in the south to be represented by their union of choice, the Communications Workers Union.

They are planning to stage a demonstration outside the company's corporate headquarters in Dublin at lunchtime today.
