SIPTU representatives have demanded confirmation in writing from the Health Service Executive (HSE) concerning the re-opening of 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 re-opened and are demanding proof of an official approval for this vital facility to be upgraded. “The people who rely 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 a clear re-opening date for the centre would provide." He added: “At today’s meeting, SIPTU representatives expressed disappointment of union members at the failure of management to confirm a date for the re-opening. We demanded a definite timeframe for the opening of the centre including information on any remaining works that need to be completed.”
