The surveyors union has expressed concerns about the number of surveyors employed by the surveyor general and said the union would seek clarification from the Department of Employment before accepting an offer.
The surveyors general are not the union’s representatives, and they are not entitled to strike or go on strike over the new arrangements.
They have also expressed concern that some of the new hires are not union members.
The Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation has said it will “take all necessary action” if the surveyers union are not willing to accept the offer.
It has said that any recruitment contract would be for a period of six months.
The union has not yet received a formal offer from the department, but is confident the survey workers will accept it, the union said.
The company said in a statement on Friday that the survey work is currently being conducted in Ireland and is part of the National Land Surveyor Programme.
It said the surveying is undertaken by an independent company, who are in contact with all interested parties to ensure all the terms and conditions of the contract are met.
The national surveyor programme is part-funded by the Department and runs from October 1, 2017, until March 2019.
The department said it was “very pleased” with the survey results and that it was working with the union to get the job done quickly.
The statement said the company has been “very responsive” to the survey and will continue to work with the unions to ensure that the contract is “as flexible and flexible as possible”.
“This is a great example of the benefits of being a company that is willing to work collaboratively and find common ground,” it said.
“We hope the survey team will find a solution that suits them and all involved.”
