Gardai won’t discuss new rosters – GRA

A new report's recommending a shake-up of garda rosters that would see more officers on the beat.

The Head of the Garda Inspectorate Kathleen O'Toole says rosters were last negotiated in the 1970s and will have to change.

However, the Garda Representitive Association says it will not cooperate with any attempt to being in new rosters, as that was part of the talks that collapsed before December's budget.

Burnfoot based Garda Michael O'Boyce is the association's president - He says the concililation and arbitration system has been scuppered by the government.
