SIPTU warns of strike action by Section 39 health care workers over pay issues

Health and social care workers looking for pay restorations are threatening strike action on the 12th of February.

SIPTU members are angry that thousands of their members pay hasn’t been increased despite favourable recommendations from the Labour Court. The Taoiseach acknowledged pay linkage with other public service healthcare workers back in November, but nothing’s been implemented.

Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell says their members haven’t had a pay rise in line with other health workers.
