SIPTU members in St. Leo’s College, Carlow voted, yesterday (Wednesday, 29th January), in favour of industrial action in a dispute concerning unilateral changes to their terms and conditions of employment.
SIPTU Organiser, Bill Mulcahy, said: “SIPTU members at St. Leo’s College had no alternative but to ballot for industrial action due to the intransigence of management in its implementation of cuts to their terms and conditions of employment without agreement.
He added: “Union representatives are available to enter negotiations in order to reach a settlement to this dispute which is acceptable to our members.”
SIPTU represents two caretakers and a student services coordinator at St. Leo’s College.
