A new mixed-gender unit at Oberstown Detention Centre in Dublin is causing fear among staff.

Safety

The workers say there is a very real threat to the health and safety of young people in their care and to themselves.

Forsa says it was not consulted on the policy and the majority of its members are against the new unit.

Assistant General Secretary of the union, Seán McElhinney, says workers are prepared to go on strike.

The Board and management at Oberstown say all practices on the campus are in line with national and international standards.
