- AND -
INP & DTG
Chairman: Mr Duffy
Employer Member: Mr Doherty
Worker Member: Mr O'Neill
1. Construction Industry Registered Employment Agreement - Pensions Assurance And Sick Pay
2. The dispute before the Court concerns a claim by the Union that the Company is in breach of the Construction Industry REA as it has not registered it's employees in the Construction Federations Pensions Assurance and Sick Pay Scheme and is liable to do so by virtue of the nature of it's business i.e that it operates on building sites. On the 17th July, 2005, the Union referred a complaint to the Labour Court under Section 32 if the Industrial Relations Act, 1946. A Court hearing was held on the 10th May 2006.
- The Company rejects the claim on the basis that it has no direct employees.
The named Company is not an employer of workers covered by the Registered Employment Agreement.
On that basis the Court determines that the Union's complaint is not well founded.
