Employers to meet to discuss Section 39 pay impasse
HSE and several of these employers have confirmed that they will meet this Wednesday (4th December) for the purpose of addressing the ongoing impasse regarding pay restoration for thousands of SIPTU members.
SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell said: “While SIPTU is not party to these initial discussions, our representatives have been invited to attend a WRC conciliation conference. Hopefully, the HSE and the Section 39 Home Help organisations will resolve their dispute in a way that allows our members receive payment of outstanding monies in a timely and orderly fashion.
He added: “However, should an agreement not be reached, SIPTU representatives will commence balloting members for strike action in selected employments over the coming weeks.”
