Ireland - Employers' association withdraws from national pay agreement - November 26, 2009

IBEC (Irish Business and Employers Confederation) has formally withdrawn from the terms of the current national pay agreement, and warned that it will withdraw from social partnership entirely unless agreement with trade unions can be reached soon. The employers' association reiterated that there should be no pay rises before 2011 and said it would take unilateral action if no agreement was reached with the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) between now and mid-December.
