THE 24/7 FRONTLINE Services Alliance, which is made up of unions and organisations representing gardaí, nurses, midwives, prison officers and other frontline staff, is to meet to agree on a collective strategy.

The executive committees/councils of the organisations in the alliance are to meet on Thursday afternoon, 28 February, in Croke Park to review developments arising from the Croke Park extension talks.

Following a 13-hour meeting on Sunday night and Monday morning, the Government and unions agreed on proposals for the Croke Park extension.

Proposals

The 24/7 Frontline Services Alliance said it will be “reaffirming its belief that the proposals that have emerged are grossly unfair, and inequitable, and seek to take money from low and middle income public servants who have no more to give”.

The joint meeting will also discuss and agree a collective strategy to be rolled out in the coming weeks.  This will focus on informing the  Alliance’s collective membership, and other public service workers, of the details of the proposals and the damaging impact they will have on their current income.

The joint meeting will also review how the 24/7 Frontline Services Alliance can liaise with other unions who are opposed to the current proposals.

“This will be for the purpose of securing the strongest campaign possible against these unfair proposals, in the interests of our collective membership,” said their statement.
