Workers in Section 39 organisations – including Western Care, Ability West and Rehab – have deferred the strike action which was scheduled for this Wednesday, following an agreement facilitated by the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC), to begin a process that it is hoped will lead to the restoration of pay for thousands of health and social care workers.

SIPTU has welcomed the news and said that, after months of intense campaigning, they have  secured a viable process for a structured and transparent pay restoration mechanism for thousands of Section 39 workers.

The Health Minister Simon Harris has also welcomed the deferral of industrial action, and says he’s pleased that services will not be disrupted.

The HSE will carry out an analysis, with an interim report expected by the end of March.
