Workers who answer 999 emergency calls have given notice of a 12 hour strike on the day before the general election. (Thurs 25th)

The CWU - which represents the workers - says to protect the service - the work stoppage will take place only at the Navan 999 centre between 8am and 8pm.

It means the other centres - in Ballyshannon and in Dublin will operate as normal.

The Communications Workers Union has indicated that it remains to open to dialogue, with a view to resolving the issues at the centre of this dispute - namely a living wage of 11.50 an hour, a fair on-call policy and collective bargaining.
