The “public service deal” is historic betrayal of public service union members by ICTU and its Public Services Negotiating Committee of general secretaries.The National Public Services Alliance calls on the elected national executives of individual unions to reject these destructive proposals without ballot where rules permit.
Should national executives put these proposals to ballot, the NPSA will campaign vigorously in each union for a “no” vote
The NPSA also calls on all national executive committees of individual unions to keep directives and forms of industrial action in place rejecting the call by Kieran Mulvey to end industrial action.

This course brings together experienced activists in community education and social movements with those interested and motivated about social justice to create new knowledge and develop alternatives.
