The No2CrokePark2 Campaign welcomes the rejection of Croke Park 2 by trade unionists across the public sector. Even in unions where a yes vote was recommended members have sent a clear message that they have had enough of cuts and austerity.
It is now clear that many trade union leaders are out of touch with the reality of most members lives and do not clearly understand that members have nothing left to give.
Rather than fight for the policies of the trade union movement which call for the implementation of taxes on the rich and the wealthy they sought to sell a vicious package of cuts to workers who have already given enough. They should now move aside.
Croke Park 2 is dead. There can be no talks on an agenda of cuts. Threats to legislate for pay cuts should be met by determined action across the public sector.
