Strike! Garda sergeants and inspectors begin first-ever work-to-rule action

The defenders of the country’s society are today embarking on a never-before-seen, historic campaign of industrial action.

The opening salvo is a work-to-rule action that started at 7am today. For 12 hours, sergeants and inspectors will not use the 17-year-old, not-user-friendly PULSE system.

The row centers around pay and conditions within the Force, with morale reportedly at an all time low.

Up to 12,500 gardai may down tools on November 4, 11, 18, and 25 if the current talks between governing bodies are not successful.

Many fear a Mad Max-esque state of total lawlessness in the country if gardai walk out of the jobs.
