Tuesday, 12th January 2016
I refer to my note, of yesterday evening, confirming the deferral of planned industrial action, in seven hospitals, to allow consideration of revised proposals from the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).
I wish to confirm that, as a first step, we are convening a further national meeting, of ED representatives, together with members of the National Representative Committee. This meeting which will take place at 11.30 a.m. next Tuesday, 19th January 2016, here in INMO Head Office, will allow us to begin briefing key ED representatives on the revised proposals. Formal notice of this meeting will issue tomorrow morning.
I also wish to confirm that we are currently copying all of the relevant Workplace Relations Commission documentation, together with a Q&A document, which we intend to post, to every ED member, as soon as possible.
This will allow every member to read/study the revised proposals, from the WRC, which emerged on last Monday morning, 11th January 2016. As previously stated we will shortly commence holding information meetings, in hospitals, on the proposals and, in turn, this will be followed by workplace balloting in due course.
Thank you for your attention to this note. Please study the material, when it arrives via post, in the next two/three days, ahead of attending information meetings in your workplace.
With kind regards.
