    Default #VINB Tue 16/4/2013: Croke Park 2 rejection


    Nicola Cooke, Industry correspondent Sunday Business Post https://twitter.com/nicola_cooke
    Colm Keaveney, Lab TD East Galway https://twitter.com/Colm_Keaveney
    Jack O‘Connor, Siptu https://twitter.com/SIPTUIreland

    Croke Park 2 proposals were comprehensively rejected by public sector workers. Siptu and the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation, voted against and it will not now be ratified. This a big blow for the Government, which needs to secure €300million in savings from the public sector pay bill this year. Siptu President, Jack O'Connor who will be on tonight’s show, warned the Government not to legislate for pay cuts and that people were prepared to respond with industrial action, a view shared by Unite.

    Earlier Enda Kenny told the Dáil that the options were limited and the Government would have to carefully consider what to do next. Minister for Public Expenditure, Brendan Howlin, has said that savings of €300M will still have to be made - the arithmetic has not changed as a result of the unions voting down the plans. He also said that there were no soft options left to achieve the necessary savings, and would be explaining the position to Troika officials tonight.

    So, where does this leave us? What are the options now open to Government? A good panel tonight should ensure a good discussion on where we could go from here …

    Nothing to smile about, Brendan Howlin

    "Yawn , am I alive yet ?"

    Off you go Brendan. . . . You threatened public sector workers (unlike the lads in Frankfurt where it definitely became Frankfurt's way)

    Now let's see Labour TDs vote for your cuts.

    Jack O'Connor should be a bit of fun after the SIPTU vote.

    I don't understand why many people who would not have been impacted voted no!

    I'm sure he'll have been against it all the time.
