first_imgA leading union representing staff at Letterkenny General Hospital has said the delay in compensating workers for damaged clothing during last year’s flooding is not acceptable.A scene from the flooded hospital last summer donegaldaily.comDonegal Daily revealed last week how many workers were promised compensation after volunteering to work for free during last July’s flooding.A total claim of approximately €22,000 in damages was put in by a large group of workers. But we revealed that many of those workers have still not received their compensation.Now the IMPACT Trade Union said something has to be done immediately to sort the matter out once and for all saying staff morale is very low.Richy Carrothers, IMPACT spokesperson for the North West, said the waiting period was just unacceptable.“Here we are nearly 13 months after the major flooding of the hospital and workers have still yet to be compensated for the loss of personal items such as clothes and shoes that were ruined as many struggled to save patients and prevent further damage to the hospital. “At the time of the emergency we as union representatives were assured that processing of such claims would be expedited as a show of goodwill for the enormous work undertaken by staff on the day the subsequent months of recovery. Workers lodged the claims as requested and they have still yet to be paid.“To make matters worse, it would appear that the HSE has been paid the money from the insurers and are taking their time in recompensing people. It is simply unacceptable that this money would be unduly withheld. . The hospital needs to make the situation right and quickly”.“Morale amongst many of the workforce is on the floor which has been greatly exacerbated by yet another flood on the 5th August 2014”. HOSPITAL STAFF MORALE IS ON THE FLOOR AND WAIT ON CLOTHING COMPENSATION NOT HELPING – UNION was last modified: August 14th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:clothingcompensationdonegalFLOODINGLetterkenny General Hospitallast_img read more
