State may need to become 'employer of last resort' - ICTU chief - RT News
The State may need to contemplate becoming an employer of last resort to tackle unemployment, according the ICTU General Secretary David Begg.Communism for some, pay rises for others! Now why didn`t I think of that! Economic crisis solved!!Earlier, the TEEU said it would seek pay rises of at least 5% in profitable enterprises where it represents staff.
Delegates at its annual conference overwhelmingly backed an emergency motion instructing the union to present significant pay claims in all profitable companies and sectors.
With 40,000 members, the TEEU is Ireland's largest craft union and a major player in manufacturing, construction and energy.
I really question the motives and thinking behind these union leaders.
