Pat Cahill, ASTI & "Bailing out the banks"

Pat Cahill is conveniently ignoring his own union’s past.  In 2001 the ASTI rejected the labour court’s recommendations and instead decided to strike in support of their demand for a massive 30% pay rise.

Such action directly contributed to the economic situation this country now finds itself in.  This fact needs to be taken on board by the membership of all public service unions, and for them to start putting national interest before self interest.

Ireland needs a function banking system, without which they will be no economic activity and therefore no taxes to pay public service salaries, welfare etc.  We can do without certain bankers, but not the banking system itself.
