Factors Reshaping IR In Ireland
 
# 1 : Thursday 27-10-2011 @ 19:41
 
 
So I am doing this essay for my Industrial Relations class. Here s the topic " Outline and Discuss the factors reshaping Industrial Relations in Ireland and the prospect for future pay settlements, including the revival of social partnership."

Tough one or what!!! I have a few books out and am grasping my theories and the history from those, but if anyone has any other ideas or knowledge on the subject and are more in tune with the history/future, then maybe you could help me out

Some possible broad ideas that I would consider with an essay like that

Economic conditions (effects of Austerity)

Strength/weaknesses of trade union and employer organisations and other social partners

European influences

Desires amongst social partners to revive SP

Political situation (growth of United left alliance could mean a tangental growth in militancy)

I thought it be self evident that I meant (desire or lack of)

I was answering the question in a completely neutral apolitical way

Indeed particularly since much of our media is owned by one of our most prominent entrepreneurs (other than Sean Gallagher of course) who also happens to be a ferocious critic of SP.

Social attutides and law (e.g. re collective bargaining rights, re worker directors -- check the ETUI website for some sources)

The density of union membership and the sectors where workers are and are not in unions.

Also, have a look at Aidan O'Regan's blog http://aregan.wordpress.com/ and the links out of it.

It's Aidan Regan's Blog but yes a lot of the links are very good

Also worthwhile having a quick scan of political manifestos and the programme for government

The JLC/ERO issue is very contentious as well

Might be worthwhile looking at this and

IBEC or RAI websites
