National Executive rejects Fresh Start cut-backs

The General Secretary of the ICTU, Peter Bunting, has made its position clear that the congress will not campaign against the forthcoming savage cuts involved in the Fresh Start deal. Despite having invested in newspaper ads last January to oppose the cuts, ICTU has now taken a different approach. Peter Bunting has made it clear that the ICTU will not be campaigning against the DUP/SF approved cuts, saying that he believes to do so would be “catastrophic” and has opted for what he describes as “constructive opposition” instead.

What will be “catastrophic” is the loss of more health services jobs and a fragile welfare safety net which is about to be swept from under the most vulnerable, dropping whole communities into crippling poverty.

Conscientious trade unions must oppose these cuts and not allow our public services and quality of life to be taken away from us. Following years of conflict in the North, we need more investment in programmes of health, education, healing, jobs and empowerment.

It is heartening that NIPSA and UNITE maintain their opposition to the Stormont/“Fresh Start” cuts and the Independent Wortkers Union not only welcomes their stance but joins this struggle to preserve vital public services.

This is a time to stand firm.
