Worker Member: Mr. Somers
1. Alleged breach of the Electrical Contracting Industry REA on Pensions, Assurance and Sick Pay
2. A Labour Court hearing took place on the 24th of June, 2004. The following is the Court's decision:
This is a complaint by the Irish National Painters & Decorators Trade Group alleging a breach of the Electrical Contracting Industry Registered Employment Agreement on Pensions Assurance and Sick Pay, made pursuant to section 32 of the Industrial Relations Act 1946, as amended.
This section provides that a complaint alleging a breach of a Registered Employment Agreement may be made by the Trade Union which is party to the agreement. The complainant in this case is not a party to the Registered Employment Agreement which is the subject of the complaint.
The Court can only investigate a complaint under section 32 of the Act where it is referred by a party who has standing to bring the complaint. Since the complainant in this case does not have such standing, the Court has no jurisdiction to entertain this complaint.
