Union will continue to ballot for action in five Section 39 employments
Fórsa has accepted an invitation to the Workplace Relations Commission next week to take part in discussions to resolve the dispute over pay restoration in Section 39 agencies.
The union confirmed it has accepted the invitation and will attend the talks, but would continue to ballot members in five Section 39 employments following the collapse of talks on pay restoration in August.
The union will continue to ballot members in five Section 39 employments following the collapse of talks on pay restoration in August.
The union’s Health Executive last week approved a ballot for industrial action to take place in five employments.
The employments to be balloted by Fórsa are Enable Ireland, Child Vision, Moorehaven Centre, Delta Services and Ability West.
Fórsa official Ian McDonnell said: “We will enter the WRC talks with an open mind and a resolve to bring the issue of pay restoration for our members to a successful conclusion.
“Nevertheless, we will continue with the ballot as our members should have the option to stand ready for industrial action if this process fails,” he said.
