RE: Update re Recruitment and Retention Pay Measures
We wrote to Minister Harris and the HSE on the 25 th October outlining the result of our ballot, which overwhelming rejected the pay measures proposed by the Employer in relation to the Recruitment & Retention crisis in nursing. Our members clearly demonstrated by 94% rejection of the pay measures proposed that these are totally inadequate to address the crisis.
As you are aware we are holding an NEC meeting next week 15 th November 2018 to review the outcome of our ballot and to consider balloting for Industrial Action up to and including strike.
It is with great pleasure that we present this document “Shaping the Future of Intellectual Disability Nursing in Ireland” which sets out a clear direction for the future role of intellectual disability nursing in delivering on a key priority for the HSE; ensuring the best possible health and social care is delivered to individuals with an intellectual disability.
