ICTU Press Statement on High Court Judicial Review - Sectoral Employment Orders

23 Jun 2020

High Court

The decision of High Court today to declare that  the provisions of the Industrial Relations (Amendment) Act 2015 to be unconstitutional thereby rendering  Sectoral Employment Orders invalid could have very serious implications for tens of thousands of construction workers.

Congress on behalf of the Trade Union Movement will continue to represent its membership and will insist on the preservation of the pay, terms and conditions of employment of these workers in line with those currently applying.
