FEMPI legislation must be repealed

By piofficer, Monday, 10th July 2017 | 0 comments

The Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) has again called for immediate repeal of the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest Act (FEMPI) legislation. The union has campaigned against the emergency legislation in a variety of fora since its imposition.

Speaking today, TUI President Joanne Irwin said: ‘While this draconian legislation was never justified in the first place, it is clear that the financial emergency which was used as an excuse to trigger it no longer exists. It follows that this draconian legislation, which punitively targets public servants, including retired public servants, should immediately be repealed.’

TUI will continue to lobby for repeal of the legislation.
