Irish Speed camera operators refuse to use tracking system amid pay row

Speed camera operators have refused to use a computer system that tracks their work as they ramped up industrial action yesterday.

GoSafe workers escalated their campaign in a row over union recognition and working conditions ahead of a three-day strike planned over the October bank holiday weekend.

Siptu organiser Brendan Carr said that members – who make up more than half the workforce – refused to use the Telogis tracking system yesterday.

They are demanding that GoSafe recognises the union and attends talks on their demand for a pay rise and improved conditions.

He said the computer system effectively tracks everything they do when they log their activities through an app.

Meanwhile, a 72-hour stoppage will begin at 9am on October 26.
