27 January 2011

TSSA and the other Unions were in attendance at a meeting in Broadstone 27 January 2011

The company informed the Unions that it would push ahead with a 10% cut in wages for Inspectors as from March, if the Unions do not accept and put the "Cost Recovery Plan out for ballot to the membership".

TSSA informed the company that any attempted by the company to cut the wages of Inspectors that the TSSA and the others Unions would look to block any such move, by means of industrial action and/or use of the state industrial machinery such as the LRC.

Main issues discussed:

  • Flexibility within grades

  • Acting Inspectors roles within the grades
  • Rosters
  • The company will forward to the Unions a list of rosters
