SIPTU national campaign to defend Home Help services in Donegal today

The SIPTU national campaign to defend Home Help services comes to Donegal today with a meeting in Letterkenny this afternoon and one in Ballybofey tonight.

Local SIPTU Organiser Declan Ferry says since the beginning of our Home Helps campaign, two months ago, SIPTU has held over 70 meetings throughout the country, and the attendance at and interest in the meetings reflects the importance of the service.

The meetings will also brief Home Helps on the ongoing talks with the HSE on contractual issues and Home Help hours.

Declan Ferry says it's vital that agreement is secured and the HSE does not continue to erode Home Help services.............
