Unions Welcome Tanaiste’s Clarification

The following is a statement released by the group of unions opposed to the pay cuts deal:  the CPSU, INMO, IMO and UNITE.

The group of unions opposed to Croke Park II have welcomed a clarification by Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore in relation to the current Croke Park agreement and called on the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to withdraw a statement it made last Friday and issue a correction.

Mr Gilmore said the current Croke Park agreement expires next year and when it expires, if there is no replacement, the guarantees which were contained in it will not apply beyond the expiry date of the agreement.

Last Friday the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER) issued a statement which said that unless the proposals for Croke Park II were ratified the current agreement would then cease immediately along with the protections it gives.

The group of unions opposed to Croke Park II has now called on the Department to withdraw its erroneous statement and issue a correction.  A spokesperson for the unions said:

 ‘Last Friday’s statement by DPER – which was widely reported in the media – was misleading, inaccurate and a gross interference in the democratic decision-making process of the public service trade union movement. It has caused a great deal of unnecessary confusion and even created a climate of fear amongst union members. We are calling on the Department to withdraw it and state the correct position immediately.’

Unions Opposed to Croke Park II – which comprises the INMO, the IMO, the CPSU and Unite – have accused DPER of engaging in ‘scaremongering’ and attempting to unilaterally rewrite the basis on which the talks took place in the first instance.
