On International Workers Memorial Day our members in QUB Crèche have intensified their industrial action campaign in pursuit of protection of their terms and conditions of employment. As previously advised QUB Crèche Workers commenced industrial action on 8 March 2021, International Women’s Day. Unfortunately to date the dispute has not been resolved and in an effort to bring the employers back to the negotiating table our brave QUB Crèche members have unanimously agreed to take 4 half day strikes on the following dates:
- 28 April (afternoon)
- 6 May (morning)
- 14 May (afternoon)
- 19 May (morning)
The morning strikes will run until 1pm with the afternoon strikes commencing at 1pm.
I am sure all branches will join me in wishing these brave members a successful outcome to this dispute and they have the full support of NIPSA’s General Council in this dispute.
If you attend the picket lines on any of the above dates, please ensure that social distancing is maintained and that you wear a face covering.
Messages of support from branches can be sent by email to the members via NIPSA Official
