SIPTU members demand clarity over the replacement service for the Loretto Day Centre in Navan
SIPTU representatives have demanded confirmation in writing from the Health Service Executive (HSE) concerning the replacement service for the Loretto Day Centre in Navan, county Meath, following a meeting, today (Monday, 23rd October), between management and unions representing workers in the facility.
SIPTU Organiser, John McCamley, said: “Our members are extremely disappointed that this vital service has not yet been relocated and are demanding proof of official approval for this vital service.
“The people who relied on the Loretto Day Centre and the workers there have not been kept fully up-to-date with developments in recent weeks. It is unacceptable that the workers and clients are expected to continue on life as normal without the certainty and stability that such a service provides.”
He added: “At today’s meeting, SIPTU representatives expressed disappointment of union members at the failure of management to confirm a date for the recommencing of the service. We demanded a definite timeframe for the opening of a new centre including information on any remaining works that need to be completed.”
