  • Former Labour TD calls on Government to respect rejection of Croke Park 2 » Inside Ireland
    how they voted all public servants are facing more sacrifices which come on top of two pay cuts and huge changes to working conditions Yet they have delivered billions in savings to the exchequer and stability in our public services under Croke Park If the Government and employers value that stability they must reflect on the message from this and other ballots he said Mr Cody said IMPACT would inform branches of developments following tomorrow s ICTU Public Services Committee meeting as soon as they emerge The Government said it seems clear now that the Public Services Committee of Congress will not accept the LRC proposals on a successor agreement to Croke Park Brendan Howlin Minister at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform said he was disappointed at that outcome This has undoubtedly been a difficult process said the Minister Proposals are fair and balanced It is unprecedented to ask public servants to sign up to an agreement that impacts negatively on their pay and conditions But in the economic circumstances in which we find ourselves I believe the LRC proposals are fair and balanced As I ve said consistently during this process a rejection of these proposals does not change the fact that to conform to our budgetary targets and continue on our path to economic recovery we need to make payroll savings of 300m this year and 1bn by 2015 added Brendan Howlin The Government will reflect on the outcome of the ballot and the manner in which the required savings can be achieved this year he concluded 300m savings still to be made Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said the Government must make 300m of savings from the public sector payroll this year Disappointing IBEC the group that represents Irish business said the rejection by SIPTU and other unions of the successor to the Croke Park Agreement was disappointing as an agreed way forward was preferable IBEC Director of Industrial Relations Brendan McGinty said Ireland has an unsustainable budget deficit and we continue to spend 1 3 billion more than we bring in every month The changes proposed are not easy for public sector workers but they are necessary The government must now move to ensure that there is no slippage on the established expenditure reduction targets Decision must be respected Speaking after the release of results of the SIPTU ballot Patrick Nulty TD said the decision must be respected particularly by the Labour Party Any attempt by the Government to proceed with pay cuts following the rejection of Croke Park 2 will lead to revolt within the ranks of public sector workers and this must be reflected within the Labour parliamentary party Labour Party TDs elected on a platform to protect wages and conditions should find a decision to proceed with cuts unconscionable The Labour Party must listen to trade union members and respond with a plan for growth job creation and the protection of basic pay terms and conditions Croke Park Two is dead The
