250,000 public servants to strike tomorrow, November 24th

Approximately 250,000 public service employees are expected to take strike action tomorrow. There is some confusion over which unions are taking part in the strike but RTE.ie reports that “almost all public offices and schools will be closed, while many outpatient and non-emergency health procedures will be cancelled“.

The following unions are listed as participators in tomorrow’s strike in the press release on the 24/7 Frontline Service Alliance website:

  • Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors
  • Garda Representative Association
  • Irish Nurses Organisation
  • Prison Officers Association
  • Psychiatric Nurses Association

As previously highlighted on this blog, the major teachers’ unions are taking part along with members of the CPSU.

Frontline service workers are being exempted from strike action in areas badly hit by flooding such as parts of Cork, Limerick, Clare and Galway while the ASTI have instructed that pickets will not be placed on schools that have been closed due to flooding.
