No cutback pain for union leaders

We have all suffered due to the cutbacks imposed on us in the recent Budget. There are many who believe that these cutbacks were necessary while others seem to feel there is a less painful alternative.

Our frustrations are not only with the Government, we have also been frustrated by the main opposition parties in the Dail who have offered no solutions but have assisted in undermining the whole body politic.

"Do not come to the table with problems unless you have solutions" -- that is my message to Enda Kenny and Eamon Gilmore. Our union leaders have also been shouting from the rooftops against the cutbacks. What irks me is the fact that these same people have felt little economic pain.
