The Garda Representative Association will this afternoon reveal the results of its survey of members over recent pay cuts and levies.
It will determine whether there is an appetite for industrial action among rank and file gardaí
Last December the GRA caused considerable controversy when it announced plans to ballot its members on industrial action over pay cuts
Both Justice Minister Dermot Ahern and Garda Commissioner Fachtna Murphy pointed out the illegality of such a move and warned the plan would not be tolerated
Under the 2005 Garda Síochána Act, gardaí who take industrial action or induce others to do so could face up to five years in Jail
The Association later rowed back and instead posted a questionaire for its members rather than a ballot paper asking members how they felt about the pay cuts announced for public servants in Budget 2010
Today's results will only outline the views of gardaí and the executive is anxious to point out that its not encouraging any particular course of action
