Following a secret ballot of members, the INMO membership have rejected, by 94%, the employer’s proposals in relation to recruitment and retention.
As advised to you, as part of the balloting process and in the detailed questions and answers document previously circulated, the next steps are that the Executive Council of the INMO consider a ballot, for industrial action, if there are no improvements to the proposals already made by the employer.
The INMO has corresponded with the Department of Health seeking engagement and we have advised them that the Executive Council of the INMO next meets on the 5th and 6th November where a decision on sanctioning a ballot for industrial action will be taken. A notice will issue to members after that meeting informing you of their decision and next steps associated with same.
Over the next two weeks the INMO will be corresponding with employers locally advising them of the possibility of industrial action and also requesting that cooperation is given to the establishment of INMO Communication Committees in all workplaces. It is my intention, as General Secretary, to attend as many workplaces as possible, during this period, and I look forward to engaging with you in our campaign to improve staffing for nurses and midwives through realistic and improved remuneration.
The next number of weeks will see a number of notices issue to you, please keep abreast of same by regularly linking into our website (www.inmo.ie). Please ensure that your contact / work location details are up to date by contacting our membership department on firstname.lastname@example.org.
