Ireland - Croke Park deal disputes need prompt resolution - August 31, 2010

The implementation body overseeing the “Croke Park” national agreement, chaired by former chief executive of the Courts Service P.J. Fitzpatrick, has told employer and union representatives it wants any disputes on interpretation and implementation of the agreement to be resolved as promptly and as possible. The body has also said a “one-size-fits-all approach” will not work and each public service sector will have to decide how best to implement the terms of the agreement. The public service union, IMPACT, has issued a circular to its members detailing the measures outlined by the implementation body. The union’s general secretary, Shay Cody, told members that while much of its communications will centre on aspects of the change programme, “the value of any change in addressing the pay issue for public servants will not be lost sight of by the body” (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 April, May and June 2010).
