Ireland -Unions dispute staff reduction at Irish Water -November 21, 2015

Workers at Irish Water have overwhelmingly voted in favour of industrial action over staff reductions. In ballots, workers represented by trade unions Siptu (91%) and by the TEEU (84%) voted in favour of action including work stoppages. The unions say the dispute centre on the threatened displacement of water service workers by private contractors. The trade unions that claim there has been a breach of the Service Level Agreement will be meeting with the management of Irish Water to set out the position of their members.
