Lots of new information about recently-increased salary scales, Fórsa membership benefits, travel and subsistence payments, and rights at work have recently been uploaded to the union’s website. The site, which has been live since March this year, attracts around 6,000 visitors each week. It’s currently being updated with news pages and information, including a menu system based on the site’s most popular and most searched-for content.
Fórsa’s communication officer Niall Shanahan said a number of recent updates and revisions should enhance user experience and provide members with the information they need quickly.
“The membership benefits section has been updated with an improved layout. In our pay and conditions section we’ve published information on the latest travel and subsistence rates, updated salary scales for health, local government, civil service and education reflecting adjustments applied on 1st October under the current national agreement, and we’ve added a comprehensive section on employment rights.
“The menu on the left hand side of the homepage (underneath the Fórsa logo) has also been revised and now features the pages on the site most frequently visited and searched-for. This will help members find what they need more quickly and easily,” he said.
A new blog feature has also gone live. The first blog post offers insights on the working time event at the union’s Nerney’s Court office that took place last Thursday (22nd November).
Niall added that there’s also a few more additions to be made on the site. “We’re updating information on national agreements, and adding more information about third party schemes and benefits for members. Salary scales for members in the Services and Enterprises and Municipal divisions are also in development and due to be completed in the next couple of weeks,” he said.
