INO/PNA To Protest During Visit Of An Taoiseach At Portlaoise Fianna Fail Constituency Office Tomorrow. 18/04/07

JOINT PRESS RELEASE, Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

Members of the Irish Nurses Organisation and the Psychiatric Nurses Association will stage a protest at 11.30a.m. tomorrow, Thursday, April 19th, at the Fianna Fail Constituency Office in the Square, Portlaoise during the visit of An Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern.

Speaking this afternoon, INO Industrial Relations Officer, Joe Hoolan said:

“Our members in Portlaoise and surrounding areas were very disappointed that their local Fianna Fail and PD representatives did not attend their one hour work stoppage at Portlaoise Hospital today.

Nurses and midwives expected to see their elected representatives supporting them during their campaign for equal treatment.  They were particularly surprised that their local Fianna Fail TDs did not attend as they had previously spoken in the Dail supporting a parliamentary motion which stated that the INO/PNA claims are legitimate and should be addressed.

Members will make their feelings known at their protest tomorrow and will be calling on the Taoiseach and the government to come to the table for meaningful negotiations to resolve this dispute.

In the meantime members in Laois are fully committed to this campaign and are determined to continue with this action while at the same time maintaining the highest standards of patient care.”
