Labour frontbench spokesperson Sean Sherlock has warned public sector workers, and the Government, that unless the pace of reform intensifies there will have to be compulsory redundancies in the sector.

The Labour TD was commenting on the ongoing failure of the Croke Park deal to deliver any real changes in how the public sector operates.

Speaking to the Sunday Independent, Mr Sherlock said: "Croke Park was signed and sealed in April and we have not seen anything emerging since then in terms of a reduction in numbers or changes in work practices."
