INO Denounce Issuing Of Protective Notice To Members Employed By South Doc On Call Services. 07/05/09

PRESS RELEASE, Thursday, May 7th, 2009

Management of South Doc this week issued protective notice to all of the nursing staff working within treatment centres across Cork and Kerry and in the Call Centre in Killarney. 

Speaking today, Michael Dineen, INO Industrial Relations Officer, said:

“The issuing of protective notice by management to the nurses employed within South Doc is unwarranted and can only be interpreted as seeking to victimise nurses for attempting to preserve their jobs and terms and conditions of employment against a background where management have sought to make 22 nurses redundant and to impose a 15% salary cut on their remaining colleagues.

The INO will not countenance a situation whereby our members are singled out in such a discriminatory fashion and we abhor the manner in which this matter has been dealt with by the company who have shown scant regard for the consequences of their actions on the well being of our members and have acted in a manner which is clearly in breach of the Redundancy Payments Act.  It is ironic that the protective notice has only issued to nurses despite the fact that there are significantly larger numbers of non nursing grades employed by the company who have not been subject to the same measures.”
