Trade Unions and Industrial Relations

In the current economic climate we are seeing more and more evidence of industrial unrest in unionised workplaces. The recent Electricians strike highlights the challenges facing employers who are governed by ERO's or REA's. While the current Bank strike involving members of the UNITE trade union remphasises the importance of having sound Industrial Relations procedures and agreements in place. 


Businesses who do not currently recognise Trade Unions may face demands for Union recognition and associated industrial action as they try to manage their costs and seek changes to terms and conditions of employment. 


Resolve HR can support you in all interactions with Trade Unions. We have wide experience in Industrial Relations up to national level in the Public Sector as well as experience in managing claims for Union Recognition in the Private Sector.


We provide advice on how to deal with trade disputes and associated industrial action, including strikes as well as various claims made under the Industrial Relations Acts. We can also assist you in negotiations and the drafting of procedural agreements as required. This requires experience and a firm understanding of all aspects of current Employment Law to ensure that an amicable conclusion is reached.
