Talks over health dispute adjourned
SIPTU representatives have confirmed this evening (Thursday, 13th June) that talks at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) aimed at resolving a dispute on job evaluation have adjourned until Monday 17th June.
SIPTU Health Divisional Organiser, Paul Bell said: “SIPTU representatives entered talks today with the employer with no great expectations, so we leave this evening feeling no great disappointment. We were invited back to the WRC on Monday at 2.30pm and have accepted this invitation.”
He added: “As it stands, the strike will go ahead next Thursday (20th June) and our members are continuing to put in place plans for our day of action in pursuit of pay justice.”
