Numerous construction workers at the Royal Adelaide Hospital have taken a stance against the firing of two workers they believe were punished for raising health and safety concerns.

The protestors walked to the offices in North Terrace of the HYLC joint venture group. The project their working on is meant to be a hospital for the SA Government.

Union rep Darren Roberts said the protest was in response to two workers on probation who were dismissed without explanation.

HYLC stated it was proud of its safety record and management had an open-door policy with workers.

The hospital is to be erected at the western end of North Terrace. It will replace the old RAH at the eastern end of the city
