Industrial Action Averted as AGSI To Ballot Members on Proposals from Labour Court
“Historic wrongs righted by AGSI campaign – successful outcome for Sergeants and Inspectors”
The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors have decided to ballot members on proposals from The Labour Court at a late night meeting of their National Executive.
This move means that planned industrial action for tomorrow morning has been suspended.
Speaking this evening, President Antoinette Cunningham says:
“A fundamental and historic wrong has been put right tonight as a direct result of the sustained four-year AGSI campaign to gain access to the Workplace Relations Commission and the Labour Court.
“This has always been a key part of our commitment to members and that commitment intensified in recent weeks.
“The AGSI have gained an uplift in the income of all our members, the details of which will be circulated to the National Executive and
membership and will be subsequently balloted upon.
“Finally we would like to express our thanks to the Chairman and members of the Labour Court for all their assistance in resolving this dispute.”
