2. Arising from LCR16069, which concerned a claim on behalf of nursing staff in the Retreat for pay and conditions in line with those of Eastern Health Board staff, the parties sought the further assistance of the Court regarding a number of issues. A Labour Court hearing on the matter took place on the 27th of April, 1999.
As a result of Labour Court Recommendation No. LCR16069, the parties engaged in discussions, as recommended by the Court, on the payment terms to apply to nurses employed by Verville Retreat Limited. The Court notes that the parties have agreed on the terms. The Court endorses this agreement and recommends that the necessary funding should be expedited as soon as possible.
The Court notes that there are two remaining outstanding issues for further discussion - claims for a pension scheme and a maternity benefit scheme.
