Time to scrap Croker agreement

I'M appalled at the news that FAS employees enjoy an additional 44 days' paid leave for the two years preceding retirement. This effectively puts them on a four-day week for two years so they can be acclimatised to the undoubted stresses of their impending gold-plated pensions regime.
And the SIPTU response, predictably, is what we have we hold and to hell with all the begrudgers.
The same SIPTU which will be crying out for government funds to aid growth and jobs recovery.
