Full Labour Court hearing underway
SIPTU representatives are today (Wednesday, 3rd July) attending a full Labour Court hearing on the implementation of a job evaluation scheme.
Speaking before the hearing, SIPTU Health Divisional Organiser, Paul Bell, said: “SIPTU representatives expect to get a fair hearing of our pay justice claim for our members seeking job evaluation and those working in the chef grades. We could not reach a conclusion through the Workplace Relations Commission. At this stage we have to have confidence that the Court can assist the parties in reaching an acceptable resolution.”
He added: “Our message to members’ is simple. Stay strong. Stay focussed. We are in a process. We have confidence that we can come through the process, and whatever comes out of this, SIPTU members will have the final say.”
