Everyone has a right to a place called Home

The ICTU is currently lobbying the Government on its Charter for Housing Rights .

This campaign is as a result of a major debate on the Housing needs of Workers which was held at the Congress conference in Belfast last July . All Unions attending that Conference including the GSU contributed to the debate and also attended the launch of the Housing Charter Campaign .

A major element of the charter is the call by Congress to:

Declare a National Housing Emergency and initiate a major public housing building programme.delivering a minimum of 10000 new homes annually over the next five years.
