As you are aware the Public Service Pay Commission issued its report on the 4th September 2018. Full report here
As you are aware the Report of the Public Service Pay Commission has issued and, in accordance with the agreement, of 4th August 2017, the INMO, SIPTU Nursing and other trade unions, covered by this agreement, have met with representatives from the HSE, Department of Health, and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.
This meeting took place on Wednesday, 19th September 2018, and a number of clarifications were sought, by the INMO, in respect of the ongoing recruitment and retention difficulties faced. The employer confirmed that they accept the outcome of the Public Service Pay Commission in so far as the recommendations, relating to increase to allowances, the reduction of service requirements from 20 years to 17 years, for the Senior Staff Nurse/Midwife and the extension of the location allowance to midwifery service.
We sought information regarding the pay adjustments for those who entered as staff nurses since 2011 and we are advised that a meeting, with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, is scheduled to take place on Monday, 24th September 2018, at which details of these adjustments will be made known to the trade unions.
Obviously, as you would expect, the INMO expressed our strongly held view that, of themselves, these measures will not improve the recruitment and retention crisis that exists in the nursing and midwifery professions.
When all of the clarifications, that we have sought, and the relevant information in respect of the new entrant scale adjustment, have been received we will, as already notified, present them to delegates at the Special Delegate Conference, which the Executive Council of the INMO, have convened for Wednesday, 26th September 2018, in the Cusack Suite, Croke Park.
In addition, following the decision of this delegate conference, notification will issue to all members advising of the decisions taken on that day.
As always please continue to monitor correspondence as it may be necessary to convene meetings of members at relatively short notice.
Thank you for your attention.
