  1. Irish TUC stays silent in landmark EU vote

    Thursday 26 April 2012

    Ireland’s trade union congress has decided against issuing a recommendation on the forthcoming referendum on the European Union Fiscal Compact.

    The executive council of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) agreed on Wednesday that individual unions could advise their members on the May 31 referendum.

    An ICTU spokesman described the decision not to direct its 600,000 members on how to vote as “exceptional.

    “In more recent times, in the last 10 to 20 years, there has been an endorsement of EU treaties,” he said.

    Left-wing opposition party Sinn Fein is calling on citizens to reject the treaty, which requires signatories’ national budgets to be balanced or in surplus – otherwise they will face fines of up to 0.1 per cent of GDP.

    Sinn Fein’s Caoimhghin O Caolain said that it would “fetter this and future elected governments to the failed economics of austerity.”
