IRELAND’S LARGEST UNION, SIPTU, is to vote today on whether it will urge its members to accept or reject the latest Croke Park agreement.

The Services, Industrial, Professional and Technical Union represents over 200,000 workers, and it’s believed that their decision will have a major impact on whether the Croke Park agreement, as a whole, is accepted or rejected.

The country’s largest public sector union, IMPACT, has already urged its members to accept the deal.

A number of other unions remain in opposition to the proposals, with The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO), the Irish Medical Organisation (IMO), the Civil Public and Services Union (CPSU) and Unite last week launching their national campaign which called for members to reject the offer.
