Members were alarmed to receive a message from Deputy Secretary Stephen Brady and Mark White on Wednesday 3 April 2019.
Administrative Arrangements (Administrative Changes – Public-Service Agencies) Order 2019 was referred to and it appears the effect of this Order is that Revenue staff will now transfer to the Treasury, with the exception of Call Centre staff who will transfer to the new Department of Customer Service.
The PSA has fielded a number of concerns from members, particularly from members employed in call centres. And yes, we agree with those of you who say “Where is the Consultation in all this?”.
Main concerns raised by members so far:
The PSA has written to Deputy Secretary Brady seeking an urgent meeting. We are hoping this will occur early next week and that Deputy Secretary Brady will be able to provide some information and commit to future consultation throughout the process.
Whatever the government has planned, you can be assured that the PSA will do its utmost to preserve members’ wages and conditions of employment.
The PSA is conducting meetings at Revenue sites in the near future. Times, dates and locations will be advised as soon as the meeting with Secretary Brady has taken place.
Please encourage non-members to join and to attend the meetings referred to above.
