Healthworkers balloted for industrial action


(January 2017) The SIPTU services union is balloting health workers in selected hospitals over industrial action. The union is unhappy that important provisions in the main public sector agreements, particularly job evaluation, have been applied to nurses in emergency departments but not to other workers. The union said that it opted for the ballot for action after 15 months of negotiations had failed to deliver any progress. The result of the ballot is due on 13 February.
