You guys arent really focusing on the main point. With Civil Servants now striking it is more than a coincidence that we are seeing more industrial action in 8 months under this Government than the last nine years.
If legislation hasnt changed than I guess the Unions see this Government as soft touch. The offers imo have been more than generous considering inflation.
Mike is right in that the CTU has NO affiliation to the Labour Party, but the individual Unions sure do. To a certain extent the Unions have a large say in LAbour Party policy and appointment of senior Labour Party positions.
If the Government isnt careful we are going to see inflation take off as costs certainly have.
