GRA won’t rule out strike as questionnaire is sent to members

The prospect of industrial action by almost 12,000 rank and file Gardai is looming once more. The Garda Representitive Association has sent its members a questionnaire, asking them their views on a number of options, including the withdrawl of labour.

At the end of last year, the GRA announced plans to hold a ballot on strike action, but backed down following warnings from the Garda Commissioner and Justice Minister that such a move wouold be illegal.

The Donegal based GRA President Michael O'Boyce says nothing is ruled in or out, and they will base any future decisions on the outcome of the questionnaire.
