Ireland -Austerity and bank debt – day of action -January 25, 2013

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) is organising a rally on 9 February, calling on the EU to do a deal on Irish bank debt. Workers, particularly public sector workers, have suffered a great deal due to the financial and economic crisis. Last year the EU promised to do a deal on bank debt. But nothing has been done. Ireland is currently holding the presidency of the EU and that’s why trade unions and others are using the opportunity to put pressure on EU institutions and member states.
