Fórsa is a forward thinking union with many of the challenges that our existing unions face here and I am looking forward to sharing ideas, best practices and projects that can help build all of our unions for the 21st century.'

Seán McElhinney, assistant general secretary of Fórsa says: 'Fórsa is committed to organising to create a stronger, more powerful union that delivers for our members.
