SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell, said: “In the coming days we will be convening a meeting of the members of the National Nurses and Midwives Sector Committee. At this meeting the challenges presented by this latest recommendation will be fully considered which in turn will allow us to guide our members accordingly.”
 
He added: “The union is also currently in the process of communicating the contents of the Labour Court recommendation to all our members in the sector. We will issue a further statement in due course.”
