Ireland - Public services union calls for 24 hour strike - October 23, 2009

Members of the IMPACT public services union have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action in response to the government's latest proposals for cuts in public sector workers' pay. The union will call on other public sector unions to join a 24-hour stoppage on 24 November. Six unions have joined together in an alliance of public sector workers delivering frontline services. The general union SIPTU along with unions representing nurses, firefighters, police (Garda) officers and prison officers have set up the 24/7 Frontline Service Alliance and they will all be balloting their members on strike action.
