In addition to its daily activities in workplace bargaining with employers, SIPTU campaigns on a wide range of issues - some at local level and some at national level in order to improve the quality of life of its members and of the wider community.
The core campaigning issue for SIPTU is organising workers into the Union. This activity is undertaken at all levels within the organisation and throughout all Divisions and Sectors. To assist with this core Union activity SIPTU established an expertly trained and highly committed Strategic Organising Department during the Union’s reorganisation process which was completed in 2010.
As well as campaigning on the issue of worker organisation SIPTU and its activists also commit time and energy to supporting broader campaigns advancing progressive solutions within Irish society and internationally
