  • Wide Spread Industrial Disputes Now Inevitable

    Feb 23, 2017
    At the recent Adare Human Resource Management breakfast briefings across the country, I pointed out the ever-growing alarming trends of industrial disputes.

Last month in this Newsletter I covered escalating difficulties within the public health sector and in particular Emergency Department support staff. This dispute has now come to a head with the withdrawal of labour at a number of Emergency Departments scheduled for March 7th, along with a completely separate Nurses “work to rule” to commence on the same day. Other industrial disputes are now taking place in the public transport sector, bus and rail, as well as the private sector for example at the Kerry Group and major retailer Tesco.
