Forsa’s Hospital Pharamist Members Won’t Strike As Planned Next Week


Planned industrial action by 500 of Fórsa’s hospital pharmacist members, which was due to take place next Wednesday (16th February) will not proceed.

The union received confirmation yesterday that the parties can proceed to the Labour Court. 

In a ballot last month Fórsa’s hospital pharmacist members voted overwhelmingly in favour of industrial action in a dispute over the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform’s  refusal to sanction an improved hospital pharmacy service, which would deliver cost savings of €55m per year, a figure which already been validated by the Department of Health and the HSE.
