Together-Razem is deeply concerned with Cllr. Deirdre Forde’s comments stating that people with ‘non-indigenous names’ are getting preferential treatment when applying for social housing. Those unfounded claims are not only prejudicial to migrants living in Cork city and county on the basis that migrants in Ireland are entitled to apply for social housing if they meet the same criteria that apply to Irish citizens, but also fail to acknowledge the diverse society we are living in, as there is many Irish citizens with what Cllr. Forde would call ‘non-indigenous’ names.
 
Indicating that migrants are getting a preferential treatment in this regard is socially irresponsible and adds to difficulties they are already facing. Houses are allocated based on waiting times, family size, area of preference and type of house. Those criteria apply to both Irish citizens and foreign nationals. Together-Razem is disappointed that migrants are being used as scapegoats for social housing shortages in a way that reinforces prejudices instead of challenging them.

On  the 11th October 2014 at 4 pm a Legal Seminar organized by Together-Razem, took place in the Gresham Metropole Hotel.. Several lecturers involved in the national employment law gave an overview on the entitlements of employees working in Ireland and on frequently discussed matters like maternity leave or unfair dismissal. All the speeches were translated into Polish by Marcin Szczerbiński.
The seminar was fairly well visited. But probably due to the excellent weather on that day some people who wanted to come – be it Polish, Irish or of any other nationality – missed out on the event. All in all the feedback from the participants was very positive: The fact that such a seminar took place in 2010 for the last time was a good reason to attend the special event. All in all the visitors perceived the message of the speeches as positive and interesting.
