Ireland: Finance union calls for changes to collective redundancies law

Financial Services Union calls for changes to the Protection of Employment Acts to give employees greater access to union representation and legal advice paid for by the employer.

Why it matters: The union highlights the poor training provision, short timeframes, and lack of trade union representation that employees face during the redundancy process.

The big picture: The union wants a simpler election process for Employee Representatives, full-time release for Employee Reps during consultations, and mandatory funding for legal counsel.

What's next: The union is pushing for a clearer list of mitigations for employers and a mandatory dispute resolution procedure utilizing the WRC and/or Labour Court.
