TV licence inspector job ‘almost impossible’ in last year


The general secretary of the Communications Workers’ Union has said the job of TV licence inspectors has become more difficult over the last year.

Seán McDonagh said events in RTÉ and the continuing political speculation have added to their difficulties.

Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Mr McDonagh said the TV licence model is no longer fit-for-purpose, and successive ministers and Government have failed to deal with it.

He pointed out that the current system was put in place in the early 1980s, adding that any future changes must ensure that the company does not “carry the can” for the shortcomings of previous governments.

“It hasn’t been updated, the legislation, in terms of making collections,” he said.

“The contract has not been updated and at times An Post itself has had to sponsor and pay some money towards implementing the contract.

“That is no longer fit-for-purpose. Events at RTÉ made that worse, and the job of the inspector is almost impossible,” he said.

Mr McDonagh described two new pay deals reached for workers at An Post and Eir as significant and a good outcome.
