WRC Conciliation Process

8th November 2023

To: All Members Cork Simon Community

Dear Member

As you aware a Conciliation Conference took place this morning Wednesday 8th November 2023 in the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) between your elected Mandate representatives and management from Cork Simon.

Both sides gave their respective positions to the Conciliation Officer. After considering both parties positions, he recommended that due to the fact we are awaiting the conclusion of the balloting process of over 5,000 members represented by SIPTU, FORSA and INMO on the proposals reached in the WRC last month, the best course of action at this point is to adjourn the hearing until 7th February 2024, as the balloting process will be completed and the relevant funding should be allocated by the state bodies at that point.

Both parties agreed to the above date and a further Conciliation Conference will take place on Wednesday 7th February 2024.

As always, we will keep you updated on any further developments.

Yours sincerely
For Mandate Trade Union
