Valentines Day strike planned at SOS Kilkenny

SIPTU workers at SOS Kilkenny will down tools in a fortnight’s time in a row over pay restoration.

The one-day work stoppage will take place on Valentines Day the 14th of February and involves 9 other Hospitals and services which are termed “Section 39” organisations.

97% of workers voted in favour of the strike during a recent ballot.

Health Division Organiser Paul Bell told KCLR News the government has promised pay restoration to these workers and they’re not getting it.
