Union leader’s sell-out on Croke Park 2 in place…

The revised Croke Park 2 agreement known as the Haddington Road Agreement 2013-2016 has just been published. The full document is available at – http://static.rasset.ie/documents/news/haddington-rd-agreement.pdf

Howver all anyone concerned with the interests of the working class needs to know is contained in an early paragraph in the executive summary:

“The Parties are agreed on the following series of pay and productivity measures to be implemented in order to achieve the necessary €1 billion savings in the cost of the pay and pensions bill over the 3 years from 2013 to 2015.”

So no matter what positive spin the union leaders are going to put on it in the days to come the reality is that the previous agreement to cut wages and pensions by €1 billion over the next 3 years – that was rejected by a 2 to 1 margin by public sector workers – has been replaced by a new agreement that does exactly the same. Even by the standards of the corrupt and/or pathetic leaders of the Irish trade unions this is a shocking betrayal of our class.

Vote NO to the Haddington Road Agreement!
