Taoiseach’s bid to end right to strike for some
Leo Varadkar wants to ban strikes in the public sector
In his manifesto to become the new Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar outlined his intention to introduce legislation banning strikes among public sector workers operating essential services.
Emulating Britain’s recently enacted trade union regime, the proposed legislation would make Labour Court recommendations on employers in “essential public and security services” to be determined by the Oireachtas.
The Taoiseach’s manifesto also provides that the Labour Court would be the final forum for settling trade disputes.
