Labour Court hearing on health dispute underway
SIPTU Health representatives are today (Monday, 22nd July) attending a hearing at the Labour Court to discuss the dispute involving 10,000 health service workers over the implementation of a job evaluation scheme.
On this way into the hearing SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell, said; “Today is the sixth day of the engagement with the Labour Court. We are hoping that the Labour Court will be able to bring the parties close enough so a recommendation can be made which will be considered by our membership.”
He added: “However, we are not going to second guess the Labour Court. They have a job to do and we understand that everything that can be done to resolve this dispute is being done.”
