So the IHCA who represent consultants are not going to turn up at the labour court talks - turning their faces against the state machinery that all the other plebs have to adhere to. Why because they want to protect their individual contracts.
Mr Varley head of the IHCA said that two weeks ago IHCA members had voted overwhelmingly not to enter into collective agreements which could alter consultants' existing individual legally binding contracts without their personal consent.
The question I have is if they are individual contracts and cannot have a collective agreement then how can they be protected by what is a collective agreement in the croke park agreement?
From my own knowledge of health the consultants and doctors are one of the only groups of staff not to engage in major change despite what they might think.
