The INMO attended negotiations today with the HSE and funded agencies to ensure Nurses who are injured at work access an Injury Grant, rather than be placed on the Sick Pay scheme. On foot of an Adjudication Officer's Decision, the INMO argued that Nurses employed in ID services should access the preferential Injury Grant rather than having their income maintained on the Sick Pay scheme. The employers have committed to reverting to the INMO within 2 weeks. The INMO negotiating team was Tony Fitzpatrick, INMO Interim Director of Industrial Relations, Colette Mullin, INMO Information Executive, and, Philip Mc Anenly, Industrial Relations Officer.
