1. Representation by SIPTU on a collective basis.
2. This dispute concerns the Trade Union's claim for recognition for negotiation purposes on behalf of its members for pay related issues and contractual issues. The Union referred this case to the Labour Court on 5 June 2019 in accordance with Section 20(1) of the Industrial Relations Act, 1969, and agreed to be bound by the Court’s Recommendation. A Labour Court hearing took place on 31 July 2019.
This matter comes to the Court as a referral by SIPTU under Section 20(1) of the Industrial Relation Act, 1969. The employer did not attend the hearing of the Court. The Court is satisfied that the employer was notified of the time, place and date of the hearing of the Court.
The Trade Union seeks to be recognised by the employer for negotiation in respect of pay related issues and contractual issues in respect of its members which it asserts are employed in all grades in production.
In the absence of any submission from the employer in respect of the Trade Union claim the Court recommends that the employer should recognise the Trade Union for negotiation in respect of the terms and conditions of employment of its members.
The Court so recommends.
Signed on behalf of the Labour Court
