A spokesperson for Health Minister, Dr James Reilly, told the Limerick Post that whichever of the  companies wins the contract for running the hospital for up to 15 months, will be obliged to upskill the existing management team.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up There are three UK and one Irish company in the running for the lucrative contract and, the spokesman added, “the aim of this is not to privatise the hospital. It is for the hospital to have access to state- of- the- art management skills, as there are aspects of the current management structures which need to be supported”.The move has outraged IMPACT, who are describing it as a breach of the Croke Park agreement.In a letter to the minister, IMPACT’s national secretary, Louise O’Donnell, said the plans lays bare how “the HSE has drained itself of senior management personnel under the Incentivised Early Retirement and Voluntary Redundancy scheme of 2010, forcing the HSE to rely on more expensive measures to fill the human resources gaps created by the scheme”.Meanwhile, following 12 hours of talks on Wednesday at the Labour Relations Commission, the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation and SIPTU, have agreed to suspend all industrial action at the Mid Western Regional Hospital for a four week period to allow for a full review of the situation in the emergency department, where nurses say patients are at risk because of conditions.

Women’s pay victory is a ‘wake-up call’ for bosses

Posted on

first_img A landmark £12m equal pay settlement won by a group of female speech and language therapists has been described as a “wake-up call” for employers.The women, backed by the MSF union, argued that their salary range breached equal pay legislation because they were not as well paid as men in a separate occupation.Speech therapy, which is female-dominated, was compared in the NHS to clinical psychology, which is both male- dominated and better paid.The 15-year case was finally resolved after the Government reached an out-of-court settlement with the MSF.Margaret Wall, MSF national secretary, said, ” I think any sensible employer would immediately look at their job evaluation system.“The case is absolutely crucial for other organisations, not just the NHS, and we will now be looking at the insurance sector.“Other unions have been talking to us and I think the case will give impetus for more cases because the elements of the jobs examined in this case were far wider than in previous cases.”Martin Chitty, partner at employment law firm Wragge & Co, said the case has implications for all employers.“This case has opened up the fact that historic factors are not justification for differences in pay regulations, particularly when they are male-dominated,” he said.The bill will be met by the health trusts which employed the women.www.msf.org.uk Comments are closed.
