DONEGAL GRA REPRESENTATIVE IN DAIL WAGES PROTEST

first_imgMembers of the Central Executive Committee of the Garda Representative Association including a representative from Donegal are holding a protest with placards outside Dáil Eireann today.Gda Marie McLoughlin, who sits on the committee, is taking part in the protest against the unfairness of proposed public sector pay cuts. General Secretary PJ Stone told Donegal Daily: “Our Association has made substantive reforms of roster and made significant savings for the country. We were never offered a seat in the negotiations between government and the trade unions; members of An Garda Síochána were sidelined. “It is a disappointment to the GRA to learn that the Government were now intent on extending the Croke Park deal to facilitate savings to the magnitude of €60 million over three years from the pension and pay of members of An Garda Síochána.“If we are to look at the deal now being voted upon by the trade union movement, we see that it is blatantly unfair. How our Taoiseach can see this as ‘fair’ is simply baffling. Any public servant working nine to five and earning €65,000 per year will not have their pay reduced; while a garda earning €38,000 per year will suffer a pay cut.” DONEGAL GRA REPRESENTATIVE IN DAIL WAGES PROTEST was last modified: March 20th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL GRA REPRESENTATIVE IN DAIL WAGES PROTESTlast_img
