Motion on Greyhound industrial dispute

I recently submitted the following motion to Dublin City Council:

“The Council requests that in light of the on-going industrial dispute at Greyhound Recovery and Recycling and the multiple infringements by the company to bylaws, the Waste Collection Permit, Health and Safety and Environmental Protection legislation, which the company has committed since it locked out its workforce on 17th June and the recent statement by Justice Garrett Sheehan in the High Court that the dispute was a “public health issue”

That the Chief Executive Officer of Dublin City Council presents to the council as a matter of urgency, a contingency plan for a domestic waste collection services in the Dublin City Area if the company is deemed unfit to have its five-year Waste Collection Permit renewed (the company’s current permit expires on 8th October, 2014), or that the owners of Greyhound Recovery and Recycling, Brian and Michael Buckley, are found to be persons who do not meet the criteria as ‘fit and proper’ to operate such a permit.

The council also notes that despite claims that ‘market forces’ would lead to proper waste collection in such an eventuality the Council has reason to believe there is no operator currently capable of filling the gap that would emerge in services from Greyhound Recycling and Recovery’s removal from domestic waste collections. As the statutory authority for the oversight of public health and environmental protection in the Dublin City Area, the Council believes that the citizens of Dublin require that this contingency plan be presented in full to the Council no later than its next full meeting on Monday, 6th October.”
