Listening to "joe" Dublin City council and the unions Siptu and Impact came to an agreement to transfer staff within DCC. A number of jobs have come up for new position (~25) fire fighting posts with Dublin Fire Brigade however one of the conditions is that they have to be working with the council for a year. So no matter how keen you are , a librarian or bin man can get the job but nobody in the wider community.
It wouldnt matter so much with pencil pushing jobs, but seems like one should fill fire fighting jobs out the widest pool of people you can choose from.
Another example of the lobbies looking after their own?
