Sligo Nurses Vote In Favour Of Industrial Action. 07/05/09

PRESS RELEASE -Thursday, May 7th, 2009

97% of INO members in Sligo General Hospital have voted in favour of industrial action in protest at the release of temporary nurses and cutbacks in services at the hospital.

At the INO Annual Delegate Conference in Killarney the HSE management were accused of making invidious cuts targeted at frontline services and easy targets.  INO members have resolved to fight these cuts and seek the immediate reinstatement of their colleagues who have been released to date.

Speaking today, INO Industrial Relations Officer, Noel Treanor said:

“There is no question but that the nurses who have been released from their contracts to date are necessary and integrated frontline workers.  To dismiss them, as the HSE have done, shows scant regard for patient care and with further plans to close wards, this crisis can only deepen.”

Mr Treanor called on the HSE to re-engage the nurses released already and said that the 600 INO members were now ready to act in order to pursue their claims.
