Framework for Future Delivery of Water Services

Fáilte/Welcome

All staff have the option to submit a request for further information on transferring to Uisce Éireann. This will allow us to confirm the full schedule of face-to-face meetings across the country. You can register by clicking here or by calling us on (01) 237 2966. Alternatively, you can download the PDF form, fill out the details and email to LAstaffqueries@water.ie.

What to expect in your HR One to One meeting

Please find our updated FAQ Booklet based on questions asked by Local Authority Water Services staff members at our first round of in person briefings.

The Pipeline

Welcome to The Pipeline, our new dedicated newsletter for Water Services Staff. In this second edition of our newsletter, you’ll find our recent interview with Caroline O’Kane who previously worked in Limerick City and County Council, and her thoughts on how Uisce Éireann can continue building on the great legacy of the Local Authorities, delivering water services, and working for the communities of Ireland. If there is something you would like to read about in the next edition of “the pipeline”, please contact your local line management or email LAStaffqueries@water.ie directly.

How the HR One to One meeting will work

These meetings are being held locally and virtually via Zoom in each Local Authority area. Once you submit your Request for Information, we send you an email requesting you to compile your Details of Employment with the Local Authority, i.e. your current salary, grade, overtime, allowances, and all existing agreements in place with your employer. Only information provided by you will be used for the discussion.

We will be able to provide a comparison between the Uisce Éireann pay model and the mirrored LA pay model based on the information you supply. An Uisce Éireann HR representative will then go through all your information with you and confirm the guarantees in relation to your existing terms and conditions, as well as answer any individual questions you may have in relation to transferring to Uisce Éireann.

Following on from this meeting, you can confirm your intention to transfer to Uisce Éireann and we will follow up with formal contract information. You can also decide not to join at this time and consider all your options further before deciding to transfer later. All staff in water services will have the option to join Uisce Éireann up to the end of 2026.
