Ireland -Amended industrial relations bill to strengthen workers and unions -July 16, 2015

Trade unions have welcomed the new Industrial Relations Bill as strengthening workers and their representatives. Under the amended bill, trade unions will be allowed to represent workers at the Labour Court, even in cases where employers refuse to recognise them, in order to reach legally binding solutions. The bill also contains guidelines for the Labour Court to determine whether representative bodies are sufficiently independent of the employer.
