National Campaign Launches To Oppose New Croke Park Agreement

Four trade unions have launched a joint national campaign to seek a no vote to the proposals for a new Croke Park agreement.

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO), the Irish Medical Organisation (IMO), The Civil and Public Services Union (CPSU) and Unite launched the campaign at a press conference in Dublin this morning.

In the coming weeks the unions will hold a series of meetings to highlight their opposition to the proposed agreement.

They will also be lobbying for TDs and Senators to raise their objections, as well as holding a public information, poster and advertising campaign.
