High staff exit rates of up to a third a year are damaging the quality of service delivery in Ireland’s community and voluntary sector in Ireland, according to a new report launched by Fórsa this week.
Fórsa provides free support, guidance and professional legal advice to health and social care professionals (HSCPs) who are subject to ‘fitness to practise’ complaints under CORU professional registration arrangements.
The independent body established to make recommendations on the implementation of a Government commitment to resolve the issue of the so-called ‘Haddington Road hours’ resumed work this month, following the summer break.
The Labour Court has recommended that staff in the Wexford Women’s Refuge should be paid an increment for the first time in 11 years, after Fórsa took their case. It came after unions had raised the issue with management in the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).
Ireland’s Labour Court marked its 75th anniversary on 23rd September. The court’s prestigious history and crucial role in the development of the State was celebrated on social media on #IrelandThenAndNow.
