David McNarry MLA, UKIP’s leader in Northern Ireland, has welcomed reports that water will be back on “as normal” and that the hardship and misery that decent people endured, they will never be subjected to again.
“The story doesn’t end there. The Minister said he would be reviewing Northern Ireland Water. His own department should also be reviewed and in the fullness of time the public need to know what this dispute and its handling was all about.”
“Should the unions have won a pay increase from NI Water, paid for by taxpayer’s money, does this settlement have any ramifications for the hundreds of public sector workers who have already settled their new pension agreements? Will this settlement have any impact on the redundancy payments including pensions for the 20,000 workers about to lose their jobs?”
