Question:

102. Deputy Seán Canney asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment the status of the consultation with retired workers’ organisations in relation to the Industrial Relations (Provisions in Respect of Pension Entitlements of Retired Workers) Bill 2021; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that to date retired workers have been excluded from the process of engagement between sponsoring employers of occupational pension schemes and trade unions when changes to a scheme are proposed even when retired workers will be adversely affected by those changes; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [61228/21]

Written answers (Question to Enterprise)

The Government has agreed to a timed amendment to the Industrial Relations (Provisions in Respect of Pension Entitlements of Retired Workers) Bill 2021.

This will allow time, as has been outlined on the floor of the Dáil, to examine the issues carefully and to ensure that all stakeholders are consulted.

A consultation process will commence as soon as possible and will involve engagement with organisations representing retired workers.
