Public Service Pay Agreement

 

Dear Colleagues,

As you may have heard in the media, the INMO, last Friday 26th October 2018, was requested to attend before the Oversight Body of the Public Service Stability Agreement. It was our view this this request was premature considering the employer i.e. HSE/Department of Health had not responded to our request for a meeting or indeed had not responded with clarifications on matters that we had raised with them.  Please see our letter to the Public Service Stability Agreement Oversight Body which is available here.

The INMO wrote to the Minister for Health and to the Director of HR, HSE on 17th October  and advised them of the outcome of the Ballot, which you participated in, and sought an urgent meeting in order to bring about a realistic solution to the chronic retention and recruitment problems that exist in nursing and midwifery grades in the Irish public health service. 

We also advised that our Executive Council would be meeting on the 5th and 6th November and therefore the three weeks leading up to the 5th and 6th should be used to have a meaningful meeting with a view to arriving at realistic proposals that the Executive Council could consider. Unfortunately, and disappointingly, no contact whatsoever was made during that period with the INMO by either the HSE or the Department of Health.

Last evening, the INMO became aware, via the national media, that the HSE intend to offer to meet with us next Thursday, 8th November. I also now advise that, late this morning, we received an invitation to this meeting which is scheduled to take place next Thursday 8th November.  INMO response to this request is available here.

The lack of urgency and level of complacency displayed by the employer in respect of the recruitment and retention crisis is unacceptable. The Executive Council will no doubt factor this into their consideration of the steps required to address the serious shortage of Nurses and Midwives which exists in our Public Health Service. 

Further updates will issue following the Executive Council meeting on Monday 5th  and Tuesday 6th. 

Thank you for your attention to this note.

PHIL NI SHEAGHDHA
General Secretary
