Industrial Relations (Joint Labour Committees) Bill 2019: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend the provisions relating to the constitution of joint labour committees, so as to provide for cases where organisations of employers or of workers fail or refuse to engage in consultation with the Labour Court prior to the appointment of representative (employers) members or representative (workers) members, as the case may be; and to provide for connected matters.

I second the motion.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 22 October 2019.

It will be a crowded day.

Sitting suspended at 4.25 p.m. and resumed at 4.45 p.m.
