Cllr. Orla Leyden, Cathaoirleach of Roscommon County Council, confirmed earlier this week that she had met with Eugene Cummins, Chief Executive, Roscommon County Council, on Monday afternoon to impress on him her deep concern about today’s (Thursday) proposed strike of Forsa members at Roscommon County Council.
She said: “I am asking Senior Management of Roscommon County Council and Forsa to go back to the Work Relations Commission and progress talks to avert the strike.
“It is important that the Labour Court recommendations in relation to flexi-leave are implemented so that Roscommon County Council like every other public sector organisation in the country has family-friendly policies including the provision of flexi work arrangements and flexi leave”.
Cllr. Leyden said that she asked Roscommon County Council and Forsa to sit down at the WRC to resolve this issue without it escalating into a strike which would not help the organisation or the public.
