As you will be aware, the ongoing ICTU housing campaign remains of critical importance, given the very widespread and damaging impact of the current emergency families across the country.
As part of that campaign, Raise the Roof has developed a number of initiatives to help secure the policy change that is required, one of which is a major petition on the Right to Housing.
Some 81 countries around the world have enshrined the Right to Housing in law. While this measure will not resolve the crisis of itself, it has been identified by many experts and housing groups as a key component in any overall resolution.
ICTU is making every effort to ensure that as many union members as possible are aware of the petition and given the opportunity to support this important initiative.
The petition is available online at: www.ictu.ie/raisetheroofpetition
