No Croke Park renegotiation sought

The Government has not approached unions to renegotiate the current Croke Park agreement, IMPACT said yesterday. The union said that, despite mixed messages from some ministers over the weekend, the Taoiseach had now made it clear that Government policy is to stick with the deal, and to favour a similar type of agreement to take us beyond 2014. IMPACT was out defending the deal on radio, TV and in the Irish Times. Watch out for more IMPACT comment on RTÉ’s Primetime programme this evening.
