Young FG calls for Croke Park Agreement to be scrapped

Young Fine Gael President, Eric Keane, has called on the Government to rescind the Croke Park Agreement.

Mr Keane said "Under section 28 of the agreement the Government has the right to scrap the deal if the country's fiscal position deteriorates. "This condition has clearly been met. The Government has brought our country to financial ruin and we are on the brink of one of the largest bailouts in modern history. The Government wants to cut the minimum wage and tax the poorest in our society yet they intend on implementing this agreement. The arrival of the IMF and EU must call an end to the agreement.

"Our country simply cannot afford the terms of the agreement. Moving civil servants from one department to another, which is what the agreement envisages, will not solve either our country's problems or how the public service is paid for and what it delivers.

"The simple fact is that higher public servants are paid too much and there is no way of rectifying this problem under the Croke Park Agreement."
