Congress Charter for Fair Conditions at Work

Decent working conditions and a fair income – at work and in retirement - are essential components of any civilised society, along with the provision of high quality public services that meet all the citizen’s needs. The Congress Charter sets out the key elements required to make Ireland the best place in which to work, live and raise a family.

A strong economy cannot exist without a fair society.

A Living Wage

Fair Hours of Work

Right to Representation & Collective Bargaining

Respect, Equality & Ethics at Work

Fair Public Procurement

Every worker employed under a publicly-tendered contract is entitled to enjoy all the rights and protections outlined in this Charter.
