New SSB – Renewal of Registration & Updated Fee Structure for 2023

January 3rd 2023

The High Court has made a decision to quash the Electrical SEO.

An appeal was made against the SEO on various grounds & in particular the issue of the eligible age for entry to the pension scheme.

CONNECT Trade Union sought to bring the pension start age to 15 years (from existing 20 years of age), AECI, ECA & others were against the change from the existing 20 years of age.

The Labour Court judges somehow made a technical error in the manner in which they interpreted this matter and the State Solicitors informed the Minister of this error,

apparently leaving the Minister with no choice other than allowing the High Court to quash the agreement.

AECI are disappointed with the outcome of the decision of the High Court and are extremely disappointed with the carry-on of the Labour Court and the Minister.

It is envisaged that a new application by Connect Trade Union will be submitted to the Labour Court as soon as possible, taking into account any flaws that have been uncovered.

The SEO was establishing some stability for both employers and employees.

We will keep you updated on this.
