Update for all SIPTU Shop Stewards
SIPTU Nurse and Midwives, in conjunction with members of the INMO and PNA, will demonstrate against the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Ireland decision to increase the registration fee by 50% for 2015 having already increased the registration fee substantially in 2014.
In monetary terms Nurses and Midwives are expected to increase their mandatory registration fee from €80 to €150 in the space of one year and with no guarantee of a further increase in 2016.
Our members are determined to confront the NMBI and Department of Health on this unjust increase in fees and have refused to pay the increase already formally notified to them.
This issue is extremely serious and as such SIPTU Health Division is requesting all Shop Stewards, Activists and Members located in Dublin, Louth, Meath Kildare and Wicklow to attend the demonstration which is organised:
VENUE: NMBI HQ 18/20 Carysfort Avenue, Blackrock Co Dublin
TIME: 12 Noon
Come out and show your support for your colleagues against an unjust and unwarranted attack on our member’s pay.
Contact your local official for transport details
HOLD TIGHT, DON’T PAY, COME OUT ON THE DAY
