HSE to meet unions over future for Rosalie staff early next week

A majority of staff at the Rosalie unit in Castlerea are facing an uncertain future with working arrangements beyond tomorrow still uncertain.

The final two residents of the Rosalie Unit, a community psychiatric centre, will be moved to the nearby Aras Mhathair Phoil tomorrow.

There have been 24 staff looking after the final two residents in Rosalie and unions say that for up to 20 of them, there’s been no agreement on where and what roles they will be undertaking.

The HSE had cancelled a meeting between the sides at the Workplace Relations Commission for early next week, but Shannonside news understands that it will now go ahead.

Industrial Relations Organiser with Forsa Padraig Mulligan says it’s a situation that was well flagged and should not have come down to this for staff.
