SIPTU Health Divisional Organiser, Paul Bell said: “SIPTU representatives entered talks today with the employer with no great expectations, so we leave this evening feeling no great disappointment. We were invited back to the WRC on Monday at 2.30 p.m. and have accepted this invitation.”
 
He added: “As it stands, the strike will go ahead next Thursday (20th June) and our members are continuing to put in place plans for our day of action in pursuit of pay justice.”
