The Federation has received a letter from the Minister for Justice in which a further offer regarding the 5.5% interim salaries increase is made.
There are some aspects of the letter with which the Federation has concerns. These will be taken up with the Minister.
Nevertheless, the Federation believes that progress has been made towards resolving the matter and is deferring the stoppage planned for Thursday, 6 May to a date to be determined. The stoppage will go ahead only in the event the outstanding matters are not resolved.
Federation will keep members in Corrective Services informed about developments.
