Minister Martin Welcomes Passport Service Mediation
The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Micheál Martin T.D., today welcomed the offer by Mr. Kieran Mulvey, Chief Executive of the Labour Relations Commission, to mediate on issues affecting the Passport Service.
Minister Martin said:
“I very much hope that it will be possible, with the assistance of Mr. Mulvey, to reach early agreement with the CPSU which will enable the Passport Service to return to normal operation as soon as possible. In particular, I want to resume quickly the service whereby any person about to travel can obtain a passport enabling them to do so. I believe this desire is shared by management and staff in the Passport Service and by the leadership and membership of the CPSU. On that basis, I am confident that agreement can be found on the arrangements and staff levels necessary to achieve this.”
