Ireland -Overhaul of Joint Labour Committees announced -October 09, 2013

Following a Labour Court review of the Joint Labour Committee (JLC) system, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation has presented a reform of the infrastructure for labour conflict resolution. The number of JLCs will be halved, leaving seven committees of amended scope. The reform further includes a new website to replace the five current sites of the workplace related bodies, a single e-form for over 130 types of complaints and a publicly available database of decisions and determinations by the labour court. Meanwhile a SIPTU spokesperson said that Government moves to give effect to a promise in the joint Programme for Government to enact legalisation on collective bargaining would mark a ‘turning point for workers’. However, SIPTU expects massive resistance from the side of the ’establishment’.
