SIPTU's National Executive Council is meeting to decide if the union will continue its support for the partnership process.
The meeting comes ahead of a special delegate conference, scheduled for tomorrow.

SIPTU's decision could prove crucial for the future of the negotiations on a successor to Sustaining Progress.
