Siptu members working in Trinity College Dublin (TCD) have deferred sending a notice of industrial action to the university.

The union said the threatened action arose from the failure of management to offer permanent contracts to staff.

Siptu sector organiser Karl Byrne said that following a meeting of the Siptu TCD section committee, it had been decided to defer the sending of a notice of industrial action until after the group’s next meeting in April.

Undertaking

Siptu members in Trinity voted overwhelmingly in favour of industrial action, up to and including strike action, in the dispute in a ballot earlier this month.
