Fórsa seeks job evaluation hearing
Fórsa’s Local Government and Local Services Division is seeking an early Labour Court hearing on its independent business case for a job evaluation scheme in local authorities. The Labour Court had earlier proposed that Fórsa and local authority employers should resume discussions on a local authority job evaluation scheme for clerical and administrative staff.
The union’s local government divisional executive subsequently decided to re-enter talks and pursue an early Labour Court decision. The Court had earlier asked the union to prepare a business case to support its proposals for a scheme.
The job evaluation scheme proposals are relevant to clerical admin grades III-VII. Head of division Peter Nolan said he is keen for further consultation with employers to resume quickly.
