Abolish Essential Industries Schedule

posted 6 Apr 2014, 22:48 by Gerry Kangalee
The National Workers Union (NWU) in a letter to Labour Minister Errol McLeod, dated April 3rd 2014 called on the government to abolish the Essential Industries Schedule of the Industrial Relations Act (IRA) which prohibits a union representing workers in a so-called Essential Industry from representing workers in another Essential Industry. The union deems the Schedule as preventing workers from join a trade union of their choice which violates freedom of association and their right to collective bargaining. See letter here
