Update on Graduate Incremental Campaign

28th September 2016

Dear Colleagues,

I wish to thank and commend all those that attended the protest outside the Dail yesterday, which was proportionally very well attended by the PNA members. Prior to the protest a briefing session was held for TD's and Senators in Buswells Hotel. A number of Politicians also attended the protest. Following the protest, a delegation from the 3 Unions met Minister Simon Harris and Department of Health Officials. The delegation included full time officials and nurses effected by the incremental cut. Those nurse graduates gave testimony to the Minister of the impact this cut is having on their lives.

I wish to commend the PNA members who gave their very clear and forthright testimonies i.e. Thomas Heir, Clare, Catriona O Neill, Limerick, and Philip Doyle, Laois to the Minister.
