we, according to the latest research work 90 hours more per year i.e. more than 2 weeks extra relative to our old EU15 colleagues and we have more than a week less holidays on average, 20 days compared to a civilised EU old 15 average of 25.7 days.

And no doubt if you factor out outr public service lovlies who would not be subjected to American type norms or indeed any norms, it would most likely be vastly worse!

We have a lovely trade union move movement representing us in the private sector here!:mad:

This is also not factoring insane commutes as well or working at home after hours!

RTE's Industrial Relations reporter is tweeting about Wayne Rooney and Ivanka Trump. If this story was about PS hours she'd be all over it.

Accepted. I just heard the item on Newstalk's Drivetime and rushed to Goo Goo!
Nonetheless, it is massively concerning having the piss pulled out of us again and again!:mad:

With their plus 1 channel restricted to just RTE 1 and starting at 7pm and ending around midnight, there's no fear of any of them dying of overwork and extending that would be just a matter of pressing a few buttons, but I suppose knobs and buttons don't mix!:mad:

Are there trade Unions representing private sector workers?

I don't mean nominally. Real representation rather than we'll cut a deal with the govt and tell you later while we draw over 100k ourselves in salary types.

Are you referring to champions of innovation and the job creators who get up in the morning.

Modern day heroes who work like beasts and have yet to rig the system to serve them.

I am reminded of the old joke:

"How many people work here?"

"Oh, about half of them."

Long hours doesn't always equal productivity, or working "smart".

Not many, no.

The unionists know their audience and the non-PS has one role in their world: to uncomplainingly pay some of the highest PS salaries in the world and to equally uncomplainingly accept the crappy level of public service provision.

Lenin would be proud. Or more likely would have them shot.

Irish people are gormless.

Engineers,Accountants,solicitors etc have no union and deserve to be ridden by their employers.

Sign a contract for a salary and any overtime they do is unpaid. petunia

But sure WRT private sector workers, it's the trade Unions who are foremost among the riders of them!
