Anyone working in a hospital post or who feels they should be graded differently should get on to the head office of the Union Impact or talk to Patricia Barr in Sligo about arranging a group submission regarding job descriptions for ‘Scientist’ grades.

Presumably we can use some of the UK benchmarking/job description schemes without having to completely rewrite them.
