Staff at St Lukes strike for 24 hours

Over 280 SIPTU workers at St Luke's Hospital are striking today as part of a national protest.

Dave Morris, SIPTU branch organisers explained that the strike related to a job evaluation scheme which promised to evaluate staff and increase grades where applicable.

A strike planned for last week was deferred and talks have taken place at the Workplace Relations Commission between the parties involved.
