A number of unions have said that a deal offered to gardaí changes the landscape of the agreement.

THE GOVERNMENT NARROWLY avoided unprecedented industrial action this week after gardaí called off a planned strike at the last minute.

But a pay deal offered to gardaí has now prompted unions representing other civil service sectors to call for better deals for workers.

Trade unions Siptu, the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) and the Civil and Public Services Union (CPSU) have all said they would review the deal offered to gardaí.

Meanwhile, Trade union Unite has said that a renegotiation of the Lansdowne Road Agreement is needed in light of the deal.

The agreement, which was negotiated in 2015, aimed to reverse cuts in the public service made during the recession.

So, today we’re asking: Should the Lansdowne Road Agreement be replaced?
