Community workers in Kerry who have not had a pay rise in 14 years, say they're prepared to continue with their strike
Workers are picketing at the Enable Ireland Adult Training Centre in Edward Street, Tralee. It's part of a national series of strikes across the country which has entered its third day.
Protests are supported by SIPTU, Fórsa, the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation, and the Irish Congress of Trade Unions.
The striking workers are directly employed by Enable Ireland which, along with other care organisations, receives funding from the Government to pay the staff.
Seamus Smith is a Fórsa union staff member, he outlines the reasons behind the strike.
Those striking say it's unfair that they are doing the same work as their counterparts in the HSE but unlike them, have not received a pay increase since 2008.
They're calling on the Government to increase funds to care organisations so that their pay can be increased.
This protestor believes there may be further action.
