    Default ICTUs national day of protest: Saturday 9th February

    The Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) is holding nationwide rallies simultaneously in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Waterford & Sligo this Saturday 9th February from 1.30PM.

    The protest is entitled "Lift the Burden - Jobs not Debt"

    Lift the Burden - Jobs not Debt - Protest Sat Feb 9th » Home Page

    These protests are occurring as the public sector trade unions - where virtually all are affiliated with ICTU - are about to return to their members with further paycut sand worse terms and conditions of employment.

    National protests by ICTU have been held in the past and nothing has been achieved.

    Will you attend or support?

    I've done enough walking to empty buildings in the rain. I've done enough listening to over paid out of touch union heads standing on a soapbox.

    Only one reason to go to that protest.

    Any time there is any rumblings from the workers, ictu steps up with some micky mouse rally......to take the pressure off. Ictu bought and sold long ago, why not a national 1 day strike ?

    Union leaders on salaries over 100,000 euro giving out about austerity.

    Must be terrible for them all right.

    I'm not a member of a trade union.

    I did attend the November 2010 march because it was one of the few marches which opposed the EU/IMF bailout and which also imposed the bank bailout.

    I'm not sure that I will attend this demo though because it is apparent that the trade union leadership are were/are far to complicit with this government.
    Politics.ie moderators should moderate instead.

    Just thinking only today that the ECB haven't seen any evidence of protest/unrest in Ireland to date. Nice timing.

    This is real march them up the hill and march them back down stuff.......utterly meaningless. Ictu should be embarrassed to call themselves workers representatives. We will achieve far more by bringing the country to a standstill for a day.
