Fórsa is Ireland’s largest public service union with over 80,000 members, including 12,000 in the education sector. These include SNAs, school secretaries and caretakers, early education professionals, school completion staff, staff in education centres and the National Educational Welfare Board, and clerical, administrative and management staff in institutes of technology (IoTs) and education and training boards (ETBs).

#shutout Childminding Ireland protest Tuesday 21st June 2016
 
03:06
IMPACT members protested outside the Department of Children and Youth Affairs on Tuesday 21st June in support of staff of Childminding Ireland, who have been on strike since 7th June in a dispute over compulsory redundancies at the State-funded body. Workers handed in a letter to the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Katherine Zappone, asking her to use her influence to require management to engage in meaningful talks to resolve the row, which today enters its third week. In the letter to Minister Zappone, IMPACT deputy general secretary Kevin Callinan wrote: “Management at Childminding Ireland have shown a total disregard for the Workplace Relations Commission. Rather than engage in constructive negotiations, they have issued loyal staff with redundancy notices and told them they may be able to re-apply for their jobs at some unspecified time in the future. “I hope that you will agree that such disregard for the State’s industrial relations machinery – and, indeed, for basic decency and respect in the workplace – is unacceptable in an organisation that is primarily funded by the public purse. I am requesting that, as Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, you use your influence, and that of your Department, to require Childminding Ireland to engage in normal negotiations through the State’s industrial relations bodies.” IMPACT says the strike at the organisation’s office in the Bullford business campus in Kilcoole, County Wicklow, is set to continue until management withdraws compulsory redundancy notices and enters meaningful talks over proposed restructuring plans. The union says it remains available to discuss restructuring, but says redundancies are unnecessary as Childminding Ireland is not experiencing financial difficulties and has produced no business case to justify job losses. IMPACT official Stella Griffin said: “Childminding Ireland has refused to engage seriously in a conciliation organised by the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC), although it has misleadingly told journalists that it conducted a four-month consultation. In fact, no meaningful consultation has taken place. Management has had many opportunities to explain why it thinks restructuring and redundancies are necessary, and it has consistently failed to do so.”

Celebrating our youth service workers - IMPACT
 
04:40
IMPACT trade union's Boards and Voluntary Agencies branch has launched a campaign to highlight the invaluable work done by IMPACT members in the youth sector. As cutbacks deepen, our members continue to provide vital services to young people under growing pressure. This short film features staff and children at the Balgaddy after-school club. The initiative provides a comfortable atmosphere for informal education and recreation and a place to mingle with peers in a safe and fun environment. Local IMPACT rep John O'Hara works with the group. "Building relationships is a key element of the work and this can often take time and patience. But it's worth it when you see kids developing and growing confident in their own right," he says. Also featured are young people from Ballyfermot Youth Service who are now in youth and community studies at third level.

Early childhood care and education workers' rally 17th February 2015
 
01:18
IMPACT trade union members supported the Association of Childhood Professionals (ACP) and their rally outside Dáil Eireann on Tuesday 17th February. IMPACT represents workers in this sector across the country and the union has backed the call to increase funding for the sector. IMPACT and other trade unions representing workers in the sector have called on “government to provide both increased investment and a cohesive early childhood education and care strategy, so that the children of Ireland can receive the best possible foundation in life”. Úna Faulkner, organiser with the Health division of IMPACT said “Our members are doing a front line service job, educating and caring for the youngest children of Ireland. The value placed on them as professionals, however, is inadequate. The maximum salary they earn is just above minimum wage. This is simply not acceptable”.

Caring At What Cost Report launch Tuesday 22nd September 2015
 
01:43
IMPACT’s Health & Welfare division has launched a specially commissioned report - ‘Caring – At What Cost? – Rebuilding and refinancing the community and voluntary sector’ - which states that the existing statutory funding structures, for organisations delivering care services in the community and voluntary sector, lack credibility and are out of date. The report, which was researched and written by Dr Chris McInerney of the University of Limerick, was launched on Tuesday 22nd September. The report says that state funding for these organisations, known as ‘Section 39’ funded agencies, need to be restored in order to ensure the sustainability of care services to people who are homeless, older people in care, people with disabilities, young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and those dealing with drug and addiction issues. The union also said that the terms and conditions of staff in Section 39 agencies should be moved onto terms comparable with their public service counterparts.

Africa calling: An extraordinary journey
 
03:58
IMPACT-supported charity Nurture Africa took five volunteers to Uganda in April 2013. The short video (above) tells the story of their visit and what it meant to them. Nurture Africa is now seeking IMPACT volunteers for two weeks' work in Uganda next October. SINCE 2012, IMPACT's developing world fund has been supporting Nurture Africa, an Irish charity providing health care and education for orphans and children affected by HIV-AIDS in Uganda. The organisation also provides employment and health education programmes in the communities where these children live. In April this year, five IMPACT members were selected to spend two weeks working on the Development Fund Projects in Uganda. Sue Kraftsoff, Roise Brannick, Phil Lucey McAree, Marion Cody, and Grainne O'Rourke talk about their experience of Nurture Africa's work and their contact with communities in Uganda. IMPACT has committed to supporting up to ten members each year over the life cycle of the project, to experience first-hand the impact of this grant amongst the communities in Uganda. It also provides an opportunity for members to share their own skills and knowledge with the staff and communities there. The next group of volunteers will travel to Uganda in October. This is an opportunity for you to share your skills with the local community and help bring about sustainable change in a developing country. On top of that you will experience a different culture and experience first-hand how the IMPACT Developing Fund is working.

Caring - At What Cost?  IMPACT pre-budget briefing Wednesday 21st September 2016
 
03:21
IMPACT trade union, which represents approximately 5,000 workers in the community and voluntary sector, has said that workers in the sector are at risk of being left behind as pay restoration begins to take hold in other sectors of the economy. The union hosted a pre-budget briefing this morning (Wednesday 21st September 2016) at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, focusing on the community and voluntary sector, and presented the findings and recommendations contained in the union’s Caring- At What Cost? research document. IMPACT national secretary Eamonn Donnelly warned that while household costs – including rent, motoring and insurance – continued to climb, community and voluntary sector workers were still coping with the effects of salaries that were severely reduced since 2008, and increasingly unable to meet mounting costs.

Hidden Heroes: The unseen heroes of our health system
 
01:31
IMPACT’s Health and Welfare division has launched a campaign to defend the #HiddenHeroes of our health services. IMPACT national secretary Eamonn Donnelly said the union wanted to explain that all staff play an important part in delivering quality health services. “It’s often suggested that the health service is awash with backroom staff who are surplus to requirements. That’s simply not the case, and we are trying to develop awareness about the important contribution of all staff,” he said. Eamonn points to the popular view that health service delivery only involves so-called ‘front-line’ workers. “There are no front-line services without proper backroom teams and support. Many of our members work in those critical backroom teams. They are the hidden heroes of our health services and it’s time to acknowledge that,” he said. IMPACT will publish a series of  campaign videos in the coming weeks. The first video features physiotherapist Niall Geoghegan.

Des Mullally: Worker director candidate (daa) Polling Day Wednesday 22nd November 2017
 
01:17
IMPACT activist Des Mullally is seeking support for his bid to win a second term as a worker-director on the board of airport operator daa. Polling day is 22nd November, and all company employees are entitled to vote. A company employee for over 30 years, Des was first elected as a worker-director in 2013, when colleagues gave him the second highest number of first preference votes.   In a letter to daa staff, Des said he was running to address high staff turnover, protect jobs from privatisation, see that staffing levels increase in line with business and passenger number growth, and ensure that staff continue to share in the success that daa has achieved in recent years.   He told colleagues that, by working together, they had overcome much of the uncertainty of the recession years. “We’ve seen our workplace thrive as passenger numbers have grown. In the last four years we’ve secured a new DC pension scheme available to all staff, a 4% pay increase for everyone, and the restoration of pay cuts two years before schedule.   “We’ve also secured better terms and conditions for some categories of staff through new framework agreements, while others continue to work to reach agreements that should deliver pay progression over time,” he said.   But staff turnover at the company remains high. “We need to find solutions to this and ensure that working conditions are sustainable and attractive,” he said.   Asked what had been his main achievement as a worker-director so far, Des told us: “Probably the resolution of the pension issue. Four years ago we were faced with a DB scheme that was under-funded and heading for wind-up. Yet we were still paying into it, while new staff had no access to a pension scheme.   “Along with other worker-directors, I was initially excluded from board discussions on the assumption that we were “conflicted.” But we managed to get our voice heard after seeking legal advice. We were then able to give other board members an insight into the real feeling among staff. This ultimately helped to find the resolution with the creation of a new DC scheme and an upfront lump-sum investment that minimised the loss to staff.”   Des, who is a member of IMPACT’s IAESA branch, is one of seven candidates chasing four posts in the election. Staff can cast their ballot at polling stations on 22nd November.   See Vote des on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/VoteDes/?fref=ts
