TASC has partnered with the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) to investigate working conditions in the Irish construction sector.The beginning of 2021 has seen most building projects brought to a halt. When the lockdown ends construction, like other sectors, is set to restart. It is as important now as it ever has been that the sector provides quality jobs.

Join us for the report launch on Wednesday 21 April 11am with:  
  • Minister Darragh O'Brien, Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage
  • Joseph Kilroy, Ireland Policy and Public Affairs, CIOB
