    Default CPSU Special Delegate Conference - Resoundly endorses rejection of CP II...

    Well I'm home now from our Special Delegate Conference in the Gresham.

    There were around 200 delegates present from around the country. The union Leadership gave their reasons why they walked out of the negotiations with Government and why they are recommending a rejection of the deal. A forensic and very well communicated (by Derek Mullen) trawl through the areas that directly effect CPSU members - Redeployment, 'Banking' of Hours, the prospect of CO's doing EO's work and the threat of compulsary redundancy if DPER feel Redeployment isn't going as they see fit was a real eye opener.

    Approxiamately 30 delegates addressed the conference and unanimously supported the leadership is opposition to the deal. Many contributors were in tears describing their current plight and the added stress the looming changes to working hoursand conditonswould mean for them.

    It was stressed more than once by Eoin Ronayne that a No vote is just that, a No vote. That does not mean we go on strike or are in line for paycuts.

    We will wait on the results from the other unions and at our Annual Delegate Conference, end of April, we will debate our further options as by then we will know where we stand.


    We will be voting on the coming weeks and we will be voting No is a resounding result I predict...

    Talk about slitting your own throat.

    All of the unions should tell the Government where to go just like Enda told the ECB where to. . er. .

    Then everything should revert back to CP1.

    If the government imposes pay cuts then CP1 is over.

    Not yet

    If the unions vote no (possibly twice) then we'll see where their leadership lies - either with the Government or with its members?
