“Minister O’Brien must take immediate action to avoid a crisis in staffing Dublin City Council services” he said..

“There has been a serious issue with recruitment and retention of staff in Dublin City Council for several years. This issue is now becoming a widespread crisis with atate wide industrial action set to take place in all local authorities.

“The staffing crisis has been brought to a head as Fórsa trade union members will be withdrawing all engagement with all political representatives on Monday next, September 11.

“Minister O’Brien must show leadership to ensure the staffing crisis is resolved before this industrial action takes place.

“This industrial action will have a very worrying impact on the ability of councillors and TD’s to fully represent our constituents.

“However, the responsibility for this situation does not rest with the Local Government staff. The blame is solely the responsibility of this Government.”
