CBI (NI) call for further attacks

The bosses union, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has published a new report titled ‘Moving up a gear – Assessing the pace of public service reform in Northern Ireland’.

In it, amongst other things, they call on the Northern Ireland Executive to pursue public sector pay cuts and job losses with greater urgency, argue for further debate on regional rates of pay and demand the greater “opening up of public service markets” and privatisation.

Sadly, as demonstrated by the cross-party support the CBI gained for its demand for a cut in corporation tax, this failed pro-big business/anti-working class agenda rules at Stormont and must now be challenged.
