SIPTU representatives to submit proposal for NAS job evaluation scheme
SIPTU representatives have today (Friday, 26th August) agreed to submit a proposal to the Public Service Pay Commission for a dedicated job evaluation scheme for members in the National Ambulance Service.
SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell, said: “SIPTU representatives have today (Friday, 26th August) adopted a clear position that the Public Service Pay Commission, which is in the process of being established, provides a dedicated job evaluation scheme for SIPTU members employed in the National Ambulance Service.
“This development is in line with the ICTU submission to the Minister of Public Expenditure and Reform and allows for the SIPTU Health Division, the union recognised nationally for collective bargaining in the ambulance service, to pursue pay justice for our members.”
Bell added: “This bold strategy is in addition to our claim for reimbursement of monies taken by the employer under the FEMPI legislation. Preliminary discussions have also taken place on the most appropriate model for job evaluation for all grades of the National Ambulance Service.”
