Consultants resume work practices talks with HSE
on 15/09/2012 10:54:39
It is day three of negotiations over reforming work practices, and so far there has no sign of a breakthrough.
Health Minister James Reilly has put a deadline of tomorrow night on negotiations.
Sincee consultants' pay is protected under the Croke Park Agreement, the HSE wants greater flexibility over working arrangements, roster patterns and the creation of a new entry grade of doctors.
If they fail to reach agreement, the matter will be referred to the Labour Court for a binding resolution.
