SIPTU members in the National Ambulance Service control centre in Tallaght, Dublin 24, have served notice of industrial action which will begin on Monday, 6th June.
The action is due to the failure of management to implement agreements reached, following mediation at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC), on staffing levels, the filling of permanent vacancies, payment of correct pay rates and retention of staff.
SIPTU Organiser, John McCamley, said: “On 6th June, SIPTU members will begin a work-to-rule action which will affect non-emergency duties within the control centre. Staff have gone through a long and difficult engagement process at the WRC to try to resolve this dispute but unfortunately our members have found that commitments given by management have not been honoured on multiple occasions. SIPTU members are calling on management to fully implement all the WRC agreements in order to prevent a further escalation in this dispute.”
