The closing dates for implementation details on the CPD is Wednesday. Submission are to be made from the satellite depts/organisations back to the centre (DoF & Taoiseach).
As I understand it, Gov didnt approach the unions with any firm plans for what they wanted. So not much was agreed centrally. Instead, the Gov did a trawl of the depts and satellites to look for ideas. The deadline is tomorrow, but rumour is not much is forthcoming from the wings. The depts (etc) are basically waiting for central guidence so as not to be seen as over egging the situation.
Is this death by osmosis? Is the lack of leadership the Gov is showing in this area a sign that they feel they've killed off any lingering union resentment over the last 2 years a) tax rises & levys b) pension levy c) pays cuts and are getting ready to drop the deal due to clause 28 "unforeseen circumstances" - when in reality, everyone foresaw the mess they were making of things.
