Escalated Campaign Agreed by AGSI at Annual Delegate Conference over Garda Roster Dispute
The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (AGSI) has mandated its Secretariat and National Executive to take a number of actions over the continued Garda rosters dispute.
Following a lengthy address by the General Secretary, Antoinette Cunningham to the 150 delegates attending its Annual Delegate Conference today in Salthill, Galway the following mandates were issued:
- Cooperating under protest for the visit of the President of the United States next week and without future guarantees on cooperation on further VIP visits.
- Four protest Days of Action, to continue to highlight health, safety and welfare concerns around the Rosters issue.
- A mandate that individual members have indicated their withdrawal of labour on a particular day if a resolution is not found and the dispute continues to escalate.
Antoinette Cunningham says, “The conference also agreed that the above actions would be set aside if meaningful internal negotiations take place on Rosters.”
