Ireland -Court urges deal on payments -January 24, 2015

The Labour Court urged Unions (TEEU) and (CIF) to make ‘a sustained and final effort’ to reach a deal over the union’s €25m claim for bonus payments for members’ work.

In a recommendation over a row concerning a €25m completion bonus payment for work being carried out at an Intel construction site in Co Kildare, the Labour Court urged one of the country’s largest unions, the Technical, Engineering, and Electrical Union (TEEU) and the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) to make ‘a sustained and final effort’ to reach a deal over the union’s €25m claim for bonus payments for members’ work. The project was one of the largest construction sites in the country that employed, at its peak, up to 5,000 people. In May 2014, TEEU, which represents around 10 building contractors on the Intel site, wrote to CIF seeking payment in lieu of notice for all workers who were continuously employed on the site since April 7, 2014. The payments being sought ranged from €3,200 for those who had been working on the site for three to six months to €8,000 for those employed for more than 12 months. Talks failed at the Labour Relations Commission in 2014, with the dispute going before the Labour Court.
