Rosters Dispute

Last month, the National Executive of the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors was called to take action regarding the Garda rosters dispute.

While they agreed not to take any industrial action ahead of President Joe Biden’s visit to Ireland last month, delegates did agree to protest on one day of action every month until August.

The conference also agreed that the above actions would be set aside if meaningful internal negotiations take place on Rosters”, Antoinette Cunningham said at the time.

Cunningham also stated that the following Gardaí mandates were also issued.

  • Cooperating under protest for the visit of the President of the United States next week and without future guarantees on cooperation on further VIP visits.
  • Four protest Days of Action, to continue to highlight health, safety and welfare concerns around the Rosters issue.
  • A mandate that individual members have indicated their withdrawal of labour on a particular day if a resolution is not found and the dispute continues to escalate.
