Workers copy TDs and demand an extra £250 a week

These three motions were passed in January at the annual general meeting of Public Service Executive Union members working in the Department of Social, Community & Family Affairs in Dublin. They went forward to the PSEU annual conference, (as we go to print). It may appear a bit unrealistic/silly at first glance, but it does what was intended. It makes the point that one of the 'social partners' (the government) don't give a damn about pay restraint when it comes to their own salaries, and that unions should actually fight for their members (now there's a thought you don't find too often in ICTU headquarters).
