Irish bankers take action over pensions

IrelandA good humoured picket line of Amicus members was maintained throughout a wet and windy day at Bank of Ireland yesterday. The union’s action against the bank’s ‘tearing up of the negotiation process’ over its proposed new pension arrangements was the first at the bank’s head office building in over a decade.

“Pensions are supposed to be for a rainy day, so the weather was fitting, yet over 400 members have turned out today to make their voice heard on the pension’s issue,” said Amicus National Officer, Jerry Shanahan.

The Irish Bank Officials Association, which represents the majority of bank staff, has deferred a ballot for industrial action on the proposed new pensions pending a labour court ruling on the row.
