GRA to protest 'blatantly unfair' pay cuts outside Taoiseach's office

Members of the Garda Representative Association will stage a protest outside the Taoiseach's office this morning against proposed public sector pay cuts.

The GRA Central Executive Committee members and Divisional Representatives will take their placards to Enda Kenny's workplace to show him what they think of comments he made on Monday, when - they say - he blamed Gardaí for walking out of pay talks.

The GRA, which represents 11,200 Gardaí, insists they were never offered a seat in the negotiations between Government and the trade unions.

They have described the Croke Park II deal as "blatantly unfair" and argue that Gardaí and nurses are being targeted for cuts.
