As per our previous advice, SIPTU Trade Union has requested that the normal Trade Union practice of workers not in dispute continuing to work as normal but not undertaking any duties normally assigned to the striking worker.  Therefore, we request that all members observe this principle. If instructed to take on duties normally assigned to the grades in dispute, advise that you have been instructed by your union in accordance with normal Trade Union practice not be undertake those duties.  
The HSE have advised that contingency planning is taking place at local hospital level, and the INMO official with responsibilities for the particular areas will also notify nurse/midwife managers, the hospital and HSE management that they are not to ask our members to undertake these duties, as this will cause an unnecessary conflict in the workplace as normal Trade Union principles will be expected to apply as they would in any dispute. 
Thank you for your attention to this note and for those of you who work in the particular locations the IRO with responsibility for your area should be contacted if any issues arise.  
Is Mise  
General Secretary
