Fórsa publishes SNA advice sheets
by Róisín McKane

Fórsa has established a new digital tool, which gives SNAs easy access to concise advice on a range of important workplace issues including the 72 hours, working time, breaks, complex care, and June working.


Exclusively available to Fórsa members, the advice sheets provide standardised information that clearly explains SNA entitlements and agreements, as well as union positions. They cover the main issues experienced by SNAs, including:


72 hours

Break times

Career breaks

Complex care

Disciplinary procedures

Job sharing

June working

Notice periods


Unpaid leave

Working hours


Assistant general secretary Eimear Ryan said SNAs who are Fórsa members can get representation on the back of this tool, if they are not getting their legal entitlements or those set out in union-negotiated agreements.


“The SNA advice sheets can be followed by a letter from the union, and if necessary, a written instruction on the issue,” she said.
