Welcome to the Employee & Industrial Relations Section
Employee Relations is at the forefront of human resource management practice. Good employee relations are not only desirable, they are a necessity. The staff in this section work to support the Institute by providing quality advice, support and technical knowledge in the management of employee and industrial relations. We develop and implement proactive Human Resource policies and procedures which are intended to foster positive employee relations and collaborative management practices based on mutual respect, trust and shared responsibility.
The Institute has formally recognised a number of Trades Unions as having a role in representing staff in relation to discussions with the Institute concerning employment- related matters. It is Institute policy to facilitate trade union activity by normally allowing staff representatives reasonable time away from work to take part in negotiations and other union business.
The Institute recognises a number of trade unions for particular categories of staff i.e.
- Unite: Technical Staff
- Group of Unions (IMPACT & SIPTU): Maintenance Staff
- IMPACT: Administrative, Library and IT Staff
- Teacher’s Union of Ireland (TUI): Academic Staff
- Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO): Nursing Staff
- Craft Group of Unions: Craft Working Staff
