Dear IDEA members,
IDEA Services Support and admin bargaining kicked off this week with two full days of negotiations. In we September endorsed the push for full time jobs and a fairer process to deal with the challenge of service reviews. Also high on the agenda is making sure staff are safe at work and sorting pay relativities for senior staff as well as equal pay for admin and supervisory staff. E tū delegates want a short term agreement to ensure any changes are the right ones, but so far IDEA says it wants the full 12 months.
More talks are scheduled for November 13th with nationwide report back meetings due before Christmas.
