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.

To all Members,
We have been advised that the Public Service Pay Commission plan to carry out a survey “Engage to Change” of nurses, from students to Directors of Nursing, in the coming weeks to determine difficulties in relation to the recruitment and retention of nurses.
The survey is being undertaken by an Independent Research Company, Research Matters Ltd and will include online surveys and face to face interviews. The PNA have raised concerns to the Pay Commission in relation to the need to conduct this survey as it is clearly outlined in our submission to the commission the difficulties in relation to the recruitment and retention of nurses. HSE Management have also acknowledged and recognised the difficulties in recruiting and retaining in nurses. An abundance of evidence currently exists to substantiate the crisis in recruitment and retention of nurses.
