The rejection of Croke Park II marks a critical stage in our campaign to protect our pay and conditions.
The AGSI campaign is now being stepped up in an attempt to secure our own negotiating rights on any proposed changes to pay and conditions.
This campaign involves:
- Lobbying Government TDs
- Requesting a Meeting with Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minster for Public Finances Brendan Howlin
- Continuing our involvement in the 24/7 Frontline Alliance
- Working with our colleagues in the GRA
It is imperative that we highlight the following which must be taken on board by Government:
1. AGSI should be able to negotiate our own pay and conditions;2. AGSI are unique as Public Servants;3. Further cuts will significantly impact us given the harshness of working on a 24/7/365 basis.
