Pay scandal in Ireland

GAMA came to public prominence in Ireland when their subsidiary GAMA Construction Ireland were exposed for paying Turkish workers in the Republic of Ireland €2.20 per hour and working illegal overtime. GAMA were given money for the full wages of workers as part of State contracts (€12.96 an hour), but paid only €2.20 (17%) to their workers, leaving the remainder in Dutch bank accounts which GAMA had access to. GAMA were exposed by Socialist Party elected representatives Mick Murphy and Joe Higgins in the spring of 2005. After a successful strike by its workers there was a settlement. GAMA paid workers all their regular pay at full rates and came to a negotiated settlement on the overtime.

The strike was the subject of a 2006 documentary produced by Frameworks Films.
