BELFAST CITY HALL THERE WAS NO PUBLIC ACCESS BECAUSE OF TRADE DISPUTE
Almost every time I visit Belfast I have problems photographing City Hall, mainly because of a royal event. Last year it was Covid-19 restrictions. This year it was a trade dispute.
On the Monday of my arrival in the city more than 2,000 members of the Unite union began a seven-day strike on Monday morning as part of a dispute over pay. Members of the University and College Union (UCU) were also on strike over pensions.
