SIPTU secures pay restoration agreement for hundreds of home care workers in Dublin

It follows an agreement brokered by the Workplace Relations Commission to implement pay restoration in full for SIPTU members in Terenure Home Helps Services, Crumlin Home Care Services and Dublin West Home Care Services. St Marys Centre (Telford) nursing home in Dublin has formally confirmed its intention to implement pay restoration with immediate effect.

SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell said: “In response to our members determined struggle to secure the implementation of a national agreement for section 39 community and disability services, our members in Terenure Home Helps Services, Crumlin Home Care Services and Dublin West Home Care Services have today received formal confirmation from their employers that they will receive have their pay restored with immediate effect.”

“The decision to restore pay by employers and the Health Service Executive (HSE) has allowed for our members to stand down their planned strike action for tomorrow and instead focus on what they do best, caring for the most vulnerable their communities. While SIPTU Health Division is satisfied with the outcome we find it most regrettable and unnecessary that the employers and the HSE allowed this matter to go to the eleventh hour. This has caused a great degree of anxiety for our members and their clients.”

He added: “Unfortunately, the strike action planned in other Section 39 organisations throughout the country will go ahead tomorrow. Our members are determined to see this dispute through and win the pay justice they deserve.”
