SIPTU Health representatives have today (Wednesday, 12th June) accepted an invitation to attend exploratory talks at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) tomorrow (Thursday, 13th June) at 2.30pm to discuss the dispute on job evaluation. The dispute has led to the scheduled strike action of 10,000 health workers, which is due to commence on Thursday, 20th June. SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell, said; “We have accepted the invitation from the WRC to attend the talks. We will use these talks as an opportunity to restate our members’ position that the Government must make every effort to resolve this dispute. Failure to resolve this dispute will undoubtedly bring pressures on the delivery of health services.”
