Industrial action to hit Donegal services from Monday

IMPACT has served notice on Public Sector employers    across Donegal that from Monday its members will be engaging in a campaign of severeand wide ranging industrial action activity.

As part of a nationwide programme of action against cuts in pay introduced by the government,  union members will refuse to work outside their contractual employment.

One of a number of other aspects of the protest will be the refusal by members to operate with work associated with vacant posts, unfilled promotions or re deployments.

This, for example, will impact severely on County Council services given recent redundancies within the local authority.

Richie Caruthers is IMPACT's spokesperson in Donegal:

Teachers will also withdraw from extracurricular activities as unions step up their campaign against Government pay cuts.

John White from the ASTI denies its an attack on ordinary working parents who will have to deal with the fallout from the action
