Attention All INMO Members - Wednesday, 14th June 2017
I refer, again, to the recent proposals, with regard to public service pay (including recruitment/retention), following discussions between the government and public service unions.
I wish to confirm that the Executive Council undertook an initial review of the proposals at their meeting yesterday, Tuesday, 13th June 2017. Arising from this I wish to advise you as follows:
1. The Executive Council has decided to convene a special national meeting, of all campaign committees, which will be held, in the Green Isle Hotel, Dublin, on Tuesday, 27th June 2017.
2. The Council has also decided to seek further clarification, from the Minister for Health, whoever that is following the appointment of a new cabinet later today.
Specifically the Organisation will be seeking clarity as to how, under the proposed agreement, the Minister would envisage our claim for parity, with degree level health professionals, being addressed to ease the nursing/midwifery staffing crisis.
3. The Executive Council will reconvene on Friday, 30th June 2017, to complete its consideration of the proposals, including the feedback from members and clarification from the Minister, and make a final decision with regard to a recommendation pertaining to same.
4. Following this special Council meeting, on Friday, 30th June 2017, the Organisation will commence a nationwide workplace ballot of all members - times and dates will, as always, be notified locally.
In the interim, and for initial consideration by members, please see below for further information with regard to the pay proposals now tabled for consideration.
These documents can also be accessed on the INMO website and our social media platforms.
Thank you for your attention to this note. A further update will issue following the Council meeting on Friday, 30th June 2017.
