7,352 days were lost in 2006 in 10 strikes, affecting 1,186 workers and 10 firms. In 2006 the Construction sector accounted for 4,769 (65%) of the total days lost.

According to Minister Killeen, “Up to 15 years ago it would not be uncommon to see in excess of 200,000 strike days lost per annum. This exceptionally high figure came at a time when the number of people in employment barely exceeded half of todays two million at work. The formulation and implementation of partnership agreements has played a key part in resolving industrial disputes and ensuring a considerable reduction in strike days lost”.

“While there can be no room for complacency, these statistics reflect the stability of the industrial relations environment. For example, there were 1,090 days lost in the fourth quarter of 2006 compared with 22,588 days lost in the fourth quarter of 2005”, stated Minister Killeen.

He continued, “The CSO figures also show the willingness of employers, workers and trade unions to resolve potential disputes either at workplace level or, if necessary, through the utilisation of the available dispute settling services, such as the Labour Relations Commission and the Labour Court.”
