CPSU members vote for strike action

Members of the CPSU have voted in favour of strike action.

18 April 2011

Strike negotiations could be prompted after a unanimous vote in favour of industrial action from members of Ireland's Civil and Public Services Union (CPSU).

The vote was taken due to concerns over pay cuts and means walk-outs are likely if any further alterations to paycheques are made.

It was held at the CPSU's annual conference and members also approved a measure that seeks to include overtime when pension entitlements are calculated.

General secretary of the organisation Blair Horan claimed the vote was prompted by suggestions from policymakers that additional pay cuts are a possibility.

He also explained that the move would force the union to make a decision regarding its stance towards the measures outlined in the Croke Park deal.

Earlier in the month, the CPSU warned policymakers not to "pick on the least well off", with deputy general secretary Eoin Ronayne stating that members' patience is "wearing thin" in regard to pay cuts.
