What rights do trade unions have?
What is the significance of an employer recognising a trade union?
Can an employer inadvertently recognise a trade union?
Under what conditions can a trade union apply for compulsory recognition?
What happens if an independent union makes a formal written request for recognition?
The Central Arbitration Committee (CAC) becomes involved if the
employer fails to respond to the original request for recognition or refuses the
request without indicating a willingness to negotiate, or if negotiations fail.
The CAC's intervention can be postponed if the employer first proposes that the
Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service be involved in the negotiations.
The CAC will intervene only if the union's application is valid and admissible.
