Jan considering Labour leadership bid

first_imgEmail WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Jan O’SullivanFORMER Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan has told The Limerick Post that she is “seriously considering” an entry to the race for the leadership of the Labour Party.Following the resignation of Joan Burton, four front-runners have emerged from the remaining seven Labour Party TDs with Deputy O’Sullivan joined by Wexford’s Brendan Howlin, Tipperary’s Alan Kelly and East Cork’s Sean Sherlock.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Labour Parliamentary party is set to meet next Tuesday and Deputy O’Sullivan said that she may “throw a hat in the ring”.The Limerick TD, who won a 1998 bi-election following the death of Jim Kemmy, said that the political landscape can change in a very short space of time so she would consider her position over the coming days.“Well it’s true to say that a week is a long time in politics and things have turned right around. I remember that it was a very solemn walk in to the count centre at the University of Limerick Sports Arena after the General Election and I was on the cusp of losing my seat.“But thankfully, the fat lady didn’t sing then and I went on to retain my seat and indeed a seat for the Labour Party.“I will give this next option some very serious consideration.Deputy O’Sullivan “bucked the trend nationally” when she secured 11 per cent of the Limerick vote at the February 26 election – and the last Dáil place in the four seat constituency of Limerick City.“The Labour Party is strong in Limerick and it is around the rest of the country that we have to work on or rebuilding.“It’s fair to say that I am one of the four, along with Alan, Sean and Brendan and I feel that I have a lot to offer the Labour Party through my experience.“There’s plenty of fight left in this old dog”, Deputy O’Sullivan said as she recalled that just 24 votes separated her from a possible elimination in GE2016.The race for the last seat eventually came at a cost to former Fine Gael TD and now Senator Kieran O’Donnell who was eliminated on the final count NewsJan considering Labour leadership bidBy Staff Reporter – May 11, 2016 777 Print First Irish death from Coronavirus TAGSAlan KellyBrendan HowlinfeaturedJan O’SullivanLabour PartyleadershiplimerickSean Sherlock Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Proceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHLcenter_img Facebook Advertisement Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April No vaccines in Limerick yet Twitter Linkedin Previous articlePics – Corbally Community GamesNext articleCollopy lawyers seek exclusion of probation report Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Shannondoc operating but only by appointment last_img read more

O’Dea will ‘push like hell’ to abolish mandatory retirement age

first_imgWhatsApp Previous articleLimerick Dragons Breast Cancer Survivor support groupNext articleSearch on for Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneurs Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Willie O’Dea TDA UNIVERSAL pension payment should replace the State Pension and the mandatory retirement age should be abolished.That’s according to Limerick Fianna Fáil TD Willie O’Dea, who is a member of the Oireachtas Committee on Social Protection that has recommended a major reform of how the State pension operates.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Limerick Fianna Fáil TD, who sits on the committee with six other TDs and four senators from across all parties, held meetings earlier this year with Age Action Ireland, with the National Women’s Council of Ireland, Congress and Active Retirement Ireland.Speaking to the Limerick Post, Deputy O’Dea said that he is “going to push like hell” to have the mandatory retirement age abolished as it is gone in other countries “so bureaucratic inertia must be the only reason the bills have not passed through”.“No employee should be contractually obliged to retire based on age if they are willing and able to remain at work.It was recommended that the disparity between the retirement age and the pension age needs to be addressed and that the gender disparity that exists in pension income is also addressed as a matter of urgency.”The committee found that the current averaging system is inequitable and a new type of contribution system should be devised.“I am told by the Minister that €250m extra is going to be needed just to accommodate those who have reached retirement within the last 12 months and that is before there is any increase in the budget”, Deputy O’Dea said.Minister for Social Protection, Regina Doherty TD, is considering the introduction of a Total Contribution System to replace the averaging system, the committee noted.A universal pension payment to replace the State Pension (Contributory and Non-Contributory) was also amongst the recommendations put forward.Deputy O’Dea also highlighted that the discrimination against women had to be immediately addressed.“In 2012, changes were made to increase the number of bands and a doubling of the minimum number of required contributions was also introduced.This should be suspended immediately as they are negatively impacting and discriminating against women”.The committee went on to say that pension recipients deserve to have a feeling of stability and security about their incomes.“As people benefit from greater longevity, the ratio between those of working age continues to alter, from five to one in the 2011 census and projected to fall to half that by 2050.“This creates pressure on the existing pension system. There are also current consequences of historic inequity, such as the impact of the marriage bar on the contribution records of affected women”, the committee said.See more news here Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Print Twitter Email Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img NewsO’Dea will ‘push like hell’ to abolish mandatory retirement ageBy Staff Reporter – July 19, 2017 1380 Facebook Advertisement Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live TAGSJoint Oireachtas Committee on Social Protectionlimerickmandatory retirement ageState PensionWillie O’Dea TD WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Linkedinlast_img read more
