Collective Bargaining and Registered Employment Agreements legislation passes all stages in the Oireachtas – Minister Nash
The Minister for Business and Employment Ged Nash TD has announced that the Industrial Relations (Amendment) Bill 2015 has passed all stages in the Houses of the Oireachtas. This legislation provides for significant reforms to Ireland’s industrial relations laws.
The new law will provide an improved framework for workers who seek to better their terms and conditions where collective bargaining is not in place. It contains strong anti-victimisation elements to protect workers who pursue such claims and also provides for any collective agreement to be enforced through the Circuit Court, should an employer refuse to do so.
