More than 62% of rank-and-file gardaí face pay freezes, starting tomorrow.
Representatives of the Garda Representative Association are protesting outside the Dáil this morning, calling for the Government to honour the terms of the Haddington Road Agreement, which expires today.
However, the Government has said that the Lansdowne Road Agreement is the only mechanism for pay restoration - a deal the GRA has refused to sign up to.
Robbie Peelo from the Louth Division says members are dejected.
"Morale is non-existent, it's quite simply non-existent," he said.
"We had members there last weekend at a Joe Biden visit above, put out on flyovers on the motorway, and left there for 13, 14 hours - not even given a meal break, not even brought back to stations to use the bathroom because they hadn't got enough numbers to do it.
"So how could you expect morale to be anywhere in the job when you see situations like that?"
