SIPTU members in Resources Facilities Services Ltd will vote on proposals from the Labour Relations Commission (LRC) on Monday, 13th January, aimed at concluding a dispute at the contract cleaning company.
SIPTU Organiser, Ed Kenny, said: “Resources Facilities Services Ltd is contracted to provide cleaning services at Beaumont Hospital. This dispute arose from a management decision to unilaterally implement a cut to the Sunday premium pay of its employees without agreement. We welcome the decision of the company to reinstate the Sunday premium in full and to attend a recent LRC hearing into this dispute.”
SIPTU has 90 members employed by Resources Facilities Services Ltd in Beaumont Hospital. The workers conducted two one-hour work stoppages at the hospital on Monday, 16th December.
