PSA members at Ministry of Justice poised to receive revised offer

A day of mediation between the PSA and Ministry of Justice (on Thursday 29 November) has broken a deadlock in industrial bargaining.

"The progress made by getting back to the table with Ministry officials has been sufficient for the PSA to agree to suspend industrial action from 1.30pm today that had previously been in place to continue until 7 December,” said Glenn Barclay, PSA national secretary.

“Furthermore significant progress was made towards bargaining on a revised offer, with a high expected likelihood that negotiations will proceed to a settlement that PSA’s 2000 plus members at the Ministry will then vote on whether to ratify or not.

“The next step is for an agreed document to be finalised between both parties by the end of next week”.
