Further to the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (AGSI) and the Garda Representative Association (GRA) planning a 24-hour withdrawal of services from 7am on Friday, and for such action to be repeated each Friday this month…

Irish Times reports:

Garda Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan is to issue an order later on Tuesday to all Garda members to turn up for work on Friday, when a mass withdrawal of service is planned.

In a move that will greatly increase tensions in the Garda pay dispute row, Commissioner O’Sullivan is ordering those whose shift falls on Friday to be present for work.

But she is also planning to cancel all rest days and all leave, meaning every member of the Garda will be ordered to be present at their posts and Garda stations on Friday.

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold

    This action by Noreen , will ensure she has the full unconditional support from the Minister for Justice and likely the cabinet for long into the future, clever commissioner ….

      It will also ensure the escalation in hate from her own members. But i guess she weighed up the risk and decided that Government are better allies than her police force.

    But whose going to stand leaning against a wall, looking at their phone while mayhem ensues around them?

    Wouldn’t ordering Gardai in on rest days be breaking the Working Time Act? Will the Gardai who work their rest day be remunerated at an overtime rate for these extra hours?
