    Default Low hanging fruit-CPSU to resist

    Union to resist removal of 'bank time' - RT News
    RTEs public service union correspondent covered the issue of abandoning the 'time of to go to the bank' for certain PS staff on the six one news.
    Apparently, the CPSU are to resist pointing out that the move would unfairly target their members while pointing out that reform at higher levels must come first.
    Is this a clever strategy to bring public attention to the disastrous and 'untouchable' management in the PS or a looming further PR disaster for this union?
    Given that they received full pay for their go-slow in the passport office earlier in the year and later profited so handsomely from overtime to clear their own backlog, it is not surprising that they think they will be victorious on this one also.

    A wonderful place to make a stand. Well done the CPSU leadership, this will get the public out in support of the brave public sector worker.

    I doubt most of them even knew they had that half hour until today.

    It seems that they care little about PR.
    The passport issue showed this and they subsequently creamed it in overtime.

    If reform is going to be resisted down to the level of giving up half an hour of time off per week, or month then we are in serious trouble!

    Pathetic! So this is the so called willingness to reform outdated work practices.

    This rates alongside Syphilis and Sympathy in the dictionary of life for the CPSU.

    They will get neither from me.

    I thought I could even detect a hint of disbelief in the voice of RTEs Ingrid Miley, who normally seems to worship the ground that any PS union member walks on!

    What possible motivation could the CPSU have for resisting this change. What can be gained in the long-term, it smacks of short-sightedness and is a public-relations disaster.
