Caption   Jim Kemmy outside Leinster House during RTÉ strike (1992)
Personalities/Groups   Kemmy, James (1936 - 1997)
Description   Labour TD Jim Kemmy (left) speaks to an unidentified man outside Leinster House, Dublin, during an RTÉ strike in January/February 1992.

Around 1600 RTÉ staff members from three unions (SIPTU, NUJ and ETU) had gone on strike over staffing levels at the station. The dispute began on 21 January after two-person camera crews were introduced without the agreement of SIPTU; it ended on 17 February 1992 after four weeks of industrial action. The RTÉ staff magazine 'Access' published an extensive article on the dispute and its resolution in March 1992.
