I believe it is possible to find a resolution to this dispute if all parties to it work innovatively within the confines of the Public Service Stability Agreement. We have consistently spoken about it, as have the general secretaries of ICTU and the INMO. Everyone has said it. There is a duty on us to show how it can happen. We want to engage within those confines. Will I pick up the phone and ring the general secretary of the INMO? The general secretary of the INMO talks to me regularly but the way to resolve industrial relations disputes is through the State's machinery, which the Deputy has outlined.
