Impending strike action

The IAI is aware of impending strike action by the Archaeology Branch of the UNITE trade union as part of an ongoing industrial dispute with IAC Ltd. The IAI Board urges all parties to make use of the State’s industrial relations apparatus in order to resolve their differences and avoid further industrial action.

The recent agreement between UNITE and Rubicon Heritage Services Ltd at the Workplace Relations Commission demonstrates that discussions can lead to positive outcomes for employers and employees. The IAI hopes that a similar accord can be reached in relation to the current dispute.
