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.
