AGSI Warn Garda Pay Cuts Are 'Off The Table'

Garda may mount protest in opposition to any cuts in pay or allowances, the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (AGSI) has warned.

Commenting on the ongoing talks on the details on the Croke Park Agreement, the AGSI said that “as far as it's concerned” changes or reductions to allowances and other payments are off the table.

John Redmond, AGSI General Secretary, said the government should be prepared for a response if it legislates to cut pay.
