Tomorrow’s health support staff strike deferred

Tomorrow's strike by health workers has been deferred to allow for talks at the Workplace Relations Commission.

Siptu representatives have confirmed that a 24 hour workplace stoppage at 38 hospitals and healthcare facilities has been postponed at the request of the WRC.

The union says discussions on the implementation of the job evaluation scheme will get underway tomorrow.

However it says preparations for strikes next Tuesday and Wednesday will continue.
