I thank the Deputy. As he is aware, I met a number of union representatives and CE supervisors probably before, or maybe arising from, the all-party motion. We engaged in a process over the past couple of months to try to put some proposals to my Department and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to resolve the issue, but not exclusively in respect of pensions. I was very clear to the union and representatives as to where the direction of our negotiations could go. Those proposals are on the table at the moment pending discussions. As I told the Deputy privately beforehand, I am in the supervisors' corner and will be rooting for them as hard as I can. We want to find a resolution for this issue collectively. We will keep working until we do.
