GRA President disagrees with Justice Minster on sufficient garda cover during overtime strike

The President of the GRA has expressed concern over whether there will be adequate garda cover across the country today with rank and file members withdrawing overtime as their protest against a pre-Covid roster escalates.



The Garda Representative Association remains locked in a dispute with Commissioner Drew Harris over the scheduled return of the old roster on November 6th.



GRA members intend to withdraw their voluntary overtime every Tuesday in October, with threats of a ‘blue flu’ in November if the commissioner doesn’t defer his plans.



Justice Minister Helen McEntee says she’s been assured there will be sufficient cover today.


The Donegal based GRA President, Brendan O’Connor is not in agreement.
