Molyneux Nursing Home Dispute

Molyneux Nursing Home closing after 200 years. 21 loyal staff forced to joined the dole queue. Management refusing to negotiate with staff. Pay cuts implemented in january 2012 without staff consent and in breach of the Payments and wages act 1991.

Molyneux Nursing Home closing after 200yrs. Staff enter their fourth day of protest. Those of whom protesting do so ,on their days off or on annual leave. Negotiations have broken down between staff and management. On Monday management refused to enter talks until all banners were removed from the railings which were on public property. Staff removed banners, so as to enter into meaning talks. During those negotiations management refused to acknowledge or speak to the 3 female staff and only spoke to the the gentlemen representitves from the INO and SIPTU.They have shown total disrespect towards the nursing staff, care assistants and catering staff. In January 2011 management illegally implemented a paycut without gaining the consent of staff, directly in breach of the Payments and Wages Act 1991. Staff want the return of those illegally obtained paycuts and for management to enter into meaningful talks.

I wish to commend the staff for standing up for their rights since last Friday. The unfair treatment they have recieved is deplorable. While they have worked in their positions within Molynuex Nursing Home they have shown the utmost care and support for the residents, and now are being repaid by the management by a total lack of respect.

Here's to wishing that your rights are met!

This is a disgrace that any form of management feels that it is acceptable to treat working staff in such a manner.The head of this care home should take a good long hard look at how they manage care staff and any staff apparently managed under their position.Another point is if this is a nurse manager I am shocked nurses and all staff of care homes and centres work long unsocial hours, agreed part of their duty but for heavens sake long standing workers of any organistaion should surely be given proper renumeration for service rendered. This group of staff are looking for what they are duly entitled too and this is truly shocking.

I passed by today in utter shock. Staff soaking wet protesting in the rain. My mother is in a private nursing home and if she was I'll treated Like the staff at the Molyneux were today hiqa would close the place down. I was also annoyed to see the staff were all Irish. Now I see why there are few Irish staff in nursing homes. Shame on you Molyneux Home for neglecting kind hearted women, shame on you, a charity.....,. That's what I heard!!! Shame on you, you should support Irish .

I was passing Lesson park today and it really lifted my spirits to meet such a couragous, articulate and logical crowd of people. It was pouring from the heavens and they most really feel hard done by to be protesting especially in such weather! I wish them the best of luck and want them to know my day was all the better for having met them.

I work in a nursing home not far from the Molyneux Nursing Home. It has given me great hope as a nurse to see other nurses standing up for themselves. It has made me question my subscription to the INMO. Why didnt they come out and help the staff. This is how real change will happen in the nursing profession and all over the country. Real people standing up for themselves and saying enough is enough. You are not doing this just for yourselves but for all nurses. Good Luck.

As a former member of staff of the Molyneux Nursing Home I was so disappointed to hear it was closing as it was fantastic care home with excellent staff all accross the board from the nursing staff to the catering staff. I dropped by the home on Tuesday and like many members of the public was disgusted to see my former colleagues standing out in the rain being ignored by the management. I am delighted to hear they will engage with the staff today and hopefully the staff will get what they deserve which, at the very least, is a decent redundancy to say thank you for their long and loyal service in making the Molyneux as succesful as it was

I have been walking past this nursing home for many years now and have always spoken with families on their way in and out of the home and never once have I heard a bad word about the place. It is a disgrace the way the staff are being thrown away after many years of service and the management should be ashamed of themselves!!

The dispute at the Molyneux has been resolved , thanks to the co-operation of Derek Reilly Inmo, Damien Ginley Siptu and the Management of the Molyneux nursing home. The staff have enjoyed many happy years working at the Molyneux Nursing home and are glad that we were able to reach a resolution. In response to comments above I would urge all nurses to join the inmo. Thanks for all your support.

Finally a resolution has been resolved for the members of staff at the Molyneux Nursing Home. My thanks go to Damien Ginley, SIPTU, Derek Reilly, INMO, they have done trojan work for their members, and may I give a little advice to all members of any union,
"A Union is as strong as its members" Thanks again Damien and Derek, and everyone else who has supported us. Thank you.
