Fórsa is seeking to recruit organisers (initially on a fixed term contract basis for up to three years). There is one vacancy at present and the successful candidate will be based in our Dublin headquarters to work under the direction of the appropriate assistant general secretary/lead organiser and in liaison with the relevant branches.
A panel may be formed from this competition to fill other vacancies that may arise.
A Government decision to go back to the drawing board on legislation to compel employers to publish information on their gender pay gap means certain delays, and risks killing the initiative, Fórsa has said.
Forsa is engaged in negotiations with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER) on the introduction of an absenteeism policy for civil servants, which controversially, encompasses all absences including legitimate certified sick leave.
Fórsa has secured an agreement which will see the additional leave for clerical officers (COs) and executive officers (EOs) provided for under the Public Service Stability Agreement (PSSA), rolled out to analogous grades, service officers and cleaners.
