Caption   Eoin Ronayne and Toddy O'Sullivan outside Leinster House during RTÉ strike (1992)
Personalities/Groups   Ronayne, Eoin
O'Sullivan, Toddy (1934 -)
Description   RTÉ News reporter and NUJ negotiator Eoin Ronayne (left) speaks to Labour TD Toddy O'Sullivan outside Leinster House, Dublin, during an RTÉ strike in January/February 1992. The woman standing with her back to camera is unidentified.

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.
