Report calls for Gardaí who strike to face pension sanctions

A report is calling for Gardai who go on strike or take part in industrial action to face pension sanctions.

John Horgan's document does however say that all Gardai should have the right to access the WRC and the Labour Court itself.

He says the GRA and AGSI, currently Garda representative groups, should become full trade unions.

Mr Horgan is himself a former chairman of the Labour Court, and was commissioned to write the report, focusing on Garda pay and conditions.

He believes pension accrual should be denied to Gardai who do take part in industrial action, for a term of five years.
