member have told us, loudly and clearly, that they cannot accept any further reduction in garda pay nor can they accept a reduction in the terms and conditions of their employment contracts.
government has presented a menu of cost cutting measures and changes to working practices that will be outlined at our central executive committee meeting on Monday.
