24/7 Frontline Services Alliance Agrees Campaign of Opposition To Proposed Agreement - 28.02.13
- Campaign to involve public servants in every town/city
The organisations in the 24/7 Frontline Public Services Alliance, following a joint meeting of their respective Executive Councils, have agreed to commence a nationwide campaign of opposition to the proposed extension of the Croke Park Agreement.
The initial steps, in the campaign, will include the following:
- (i) form a wider group inclusive of other unions against the proposed agreement;
- (ii) co-ordinated public information campaigns;
- (iii) meetings open to all public servants in towns/cities all over Ireland, designed to appraise them of the detail in this agreement and its impact on all lower/middle income public servants; and
- (iv) media campaign, both local and national, to highlight inequalities and anti-family measures in the proposals.
These steps will be taken in addition to actions being taken by individual members of the 24/7 Frontline Service Alliance to protest at the impact of the proposed cuts.
The joint Executives have also empowered the officers of each organisation to manage/co-ordinate these initial steps and implement others.
