Four trade unions representing county council staff have today called for reassurances on future job security.

A Monaghan councillor has called for water treatment staff to be protected during talks on their jobs.

The Government plans to transfer around 3,200 staff employed by local authorities to work directly for Irish Water.

Currently, staff at more than 800 water plants are employed by local authorities, although Irish Water has legal responsibility for the running of the plants.
