Community employment schemes facing one-day strike by supervisors and assistants

Community employment schemes across the north west will be disrupted on February 18th with the confirmation that CE supervisors and assistant supervisors will commence strike action.

The one day strike action will coincide with protests at Department of Finance and six regional offices of the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, including the Letterkenny offices.

The industrial action follows a long running dispute over access to an occupational pension scheme.

Niall Shanahan is a communications officer with Forsa. He says those striking have been more than patient in waiting for a resolution to the impasse.
