SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell, said: “SIPTU representatives have spent six days in the Labour Court arguing our members’ case. We welcome the news that the court is now in a position to issue recommendations aimed at resolving our longstanding dispute within 10 working days. We would like to thank the members of the Labour Court for their hard work and efforts over the last number of weeks and our members for the patience and resolve they have shown throughout this process so far.” 
 
He added: “SIPTU representatives will issue a further statement in due course.”
