Croke Park Meetings 2013

CROKE PARK II - NEXT STEPS.....

Meetings - The IMO, along with the INMO, CPSU and UNITE, are opposed to the proposals for a new Croke Park agreement and have launched a joint national campaign to seek a NO vote on the proposals.

Over the coming weeks the Unions will roll out a national campaign including:

  • A series of meetings across the country to highlight their opposition to the proposed agreement;
  • A public information, postering and advertising campaign to highlight why public service workers should oppose the Croke Park extension;
  • A lobbying campaign focussed on TDs and Senators.

The dates for the meetings are set out below, starting in Cork Civic Hall on 14 March (specific venues for the other meetings will follow in the coming days). All meetings will commence at 8pm and will be open to all public sector workers.

Updated 11 March 

Key objections to the proposals for an extension to Croke Park focus on:

  • The imposition of longer working hours for NCHDs which will extend the already illegal and dangerous working hours;
  • The impact of proposals to freeze and delay normal increments;
  • The significant cut in pay for all IMO members;
  • Refusal to remove the Two Tier workforce for new and, in certain circumstances, existing Consultants;
  • The draconian redeployment arrangements which will facilitate involuntary redundancies for the first time in a national agreement.

Ballot - The IMO will ballot all members with a recommendation to reject the proposals. The ballot will open on Wednesday 20 March and close on Wednesday 10 April. Further details will be issued shortly.
