Reports from Meetings of the Alliance of Retired Public Servants  - November 2019. 

The Alliance represents over 14,000 retired Public Servants (Gardai, Defence Forces, Nurses, Teachers, Civil Servants etc.)  The RSTA representative on the Alliance is Carmel Heneghan, immediate Past President. The two links below contain her reports to the National Committee at their recent meeting on two meetings of the Alliance.

The first meeting was with Bríd Smith TD on 1st November 2019 on the important issue of representation for retired workers.  Current legislation precludes Unions from representing retired members.
