Re: Member Update – Section 39 WRC Process
5th July 2023
You will be aware that talks regarding pay and conditions in the Section 39 Sector recommenced under the auspices of the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) on 28th June.
At that engagement it was agreed that the Official side would bring a proposal to the Government that it is hoped, will resolve outstanding pay issues in the sector. The Official side has committed to bringing this proposal to the Government before the Dáil summer recess.
It has also been agreed that the parties will reconvene at the WRC on 20th July 2023, with the hope of bringing this matter to a conclusion.
The Union side also signalled the frustration of our membership at the length of time the matter is taking to resolve. However, Unions have consented to the request of the WRC to give the Official side the opportunity to bring a proposal to the Government on the basis that the above has been reflected in a WRC document.
