One of the country’s largest trade unions, the Technical Engineering and Electrical Union (TEEU), is to seek pay rises of 5% for its 40,000 members across the public and private sectors. TEEU represents electricians and number of other craft worker grades. It also wants to recoup all the concessions made to employers on issues such as pensions and working conditions during the past seven years. Since the economic crash, many unions had to engage in concession bargaining with employers, which frequently resulted in members agreeing to the deterioration in their traditional terms and conditions in return for greater job security.
