Community Employment schemes across the West will be hit by strike action next Monday.

CE scheme supervisors and assistant supervisors are to go on a one-day strike, in a dispute over pensions.

It's over a decade ago since the Labour Court issued a recommendation that an agreed pension scheme be put in place for community employment scheme supervisors and their assistants, but the Government has failed to implement the recommendation, according to Mayo Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway-Walsh, who's now calling on the Minister for Social Protection Regina Doherty to address the Seanad on the issue.

Last year, the Dail passed a motion calling for the Labour Court recommendation to be implemented, but it has not yet happened.

The Erris-based Senator wants the Govt to act immediately to reach a resolution to this long-running issue.
