Written answers (Question to Employment)

As the Deputy will be aware, I have been in recent discussions with representatives of CE supervisors to discuss issues arising following the 2008 Labour Court Recommendation.  The details of the discussions have remained confidential while the engagement is ongoing and I would ask Deputies to respect these wishes and allow the talks to continue free from speculation.

In order to keep discussions open until a solution is found, it is difficult to specify a definitive date by which these discussions will conclude.  However, it will take a number of weeks to complete.
