Welcome to Animal Farm

The entire country is in meltdown but doesn't stop the public sector unions from having a hissey fit.
More than 9,000 members of Siptu's Dublin Health Services branch voted overwhelmingly in favour of industrial action this afternoon over the proposed cutbacks in the health service.


“The decision to ballot for contingent strike action arose out of a clear and provocative public statement by a senior manager in the HSE to the effect that health workers were inefficient, too expensive
and inflexible”, said Siptu health sector organiser Paul Bell.
These guys are so insane "statements" are driving them to stikes!

What happened to union protecting workers rights and conditions? Now they have moved on to protecting their feelings?

22 years of social partnership has resulted in a real life Animal Farm where the "partners" now bicker over how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
