Dublin High Court rejects electrical bosses' challenge to pay agreement

THE High Court in Dublin has rejected on all counts a legal challenge on constitutional grounds by a group of electrical contractors to the Registered Employment Agreement (REA) on workers’ pay and conditions and a Labour Court ruling on the REA.

Technical Engineering & Electrical Union General Secretary Eamon Devoy, whose "Power Union" represents 10,000 members in the electrical contracting sector, says it is “a victory for common sense and decency” as well as a very welcome endorsement for the Labour Court and vindication of its procedures.

“We would appeal to employers to use the tried and tested methods of dispute resolution through our voluntary system of industrial relations rather than waste everyone’s time and money taking confrontational cases to the courts.”
