The Psychiatric Nurses Association (PNA) has suspended strike action it had planned for next week.
The PNA attended the Labour Court on Friday in relation to its ongoing dispute over recruitment and retention.
The court has suggested that the parties re-engage under the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) in order to resolve any outstanding issues, before returning to the court.
Both parties have agreed to re-engage at the WRC next Monday.
They will also go back to the Labour Court on Wednesday February 20th.
The PNA has said to facilitate the completion of this process, and at the request of the Labour Court, it has suspended planned strike action on February 19th, 20th and 21st.

The move also comes after the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) Executive Council urged its members to accept Labour Court proposals aimed at ending the nurse's dispute.
Three consecutive strike days, due to be held this week, were suspended after the Labour Court intervened on Monday.
The INMO will now hold a series of briefings across the country, to inform members on what is contained in the proposals.
Over 40,000 nurses from the INMO and the PNA suspended their strike action, after the recommendations were issued on Monday.
The PNA had suspended the strike action, ahead of the Labour Court hearing on Friday.
