SIPTU Health representatives have accepted an invitation to attend talks at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) tomorrow (Thursday, 27th June) at 10.30 am to discuss the dispute involving 10,000 health service workers over the implementation of a job evaluation scheme.

The union’s Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell told Midwest News this evening that they have accepted the invitation from the WRC to attend talks tomorrow.

The 24 hour strike will continue today, he said, and the planned three days of strike action due to take place next week (on 2nd, 3rd and 4th July) will proceed if the dispute is not resolved.

He added that SIPTU is greatly encouraged by the huge turnout of members on picket lines at 38 hospitals across the country today and “appreciates the support of the public, including patients and visitors to the hospitals, and of colleagues in the health service.”
