A series of public meetings as part of the More Power To You campaign – the campaign to reclaim the role of local authorities and local democracy – gets underway tonight (Monday). The first meeting takes place in Cork.
The More Power To You campaign brings together trade unions representing over 30,000 local council workers.

Tonight’s meeting takes place in Cork’s Imperial Hotel at 7.30pm.
