Management at St. James’ Hospital asked to come clean on St. Luke’s jobs

16 July, 2010

Sinn Féin Councillor Seán Crowe has called on management at St. James’ Hospital to clarify its position regarding the workers who are to move there from St. Lukes.

Councillor Crowe was speaking this evening after getting word that management at St. James’ are trying to introduce a proposal to outsource the work. He said this would be a clear breach of the Croke Park Agreement.

Councillor Crowe said:

“Workers at St. Luke’s have already had to deal with the devastating news that they are to be moved to St. James’ and now we are hearing that management there are considering outsourcing their jobs.

“This would be an outrageous proposal and a clear breach of the Croke Park Agreement if management at St. James’ attempt to push it through.

“I am calling on them to clarify their position on this issue. They need to confirm that those workers who are due to move from St. Luke’s will not have their jobs outsourced to a private firm.” ENDS
