SIPTU Construction industry campaigns include:
Construction workers campaign for a new Sectoral Employment Order (SEO) and Registered Employment Agreement (REA) – construction workers are organising and joining the union in order to put themselves into a strong position to demand an SEO to cover minimum pay and conditions of employment in their industry and to negotiate a new REA with employers. The aim is to restore and ultimately improve on the previous rates of pay in the previous REA before the recession. It is important that construction workers reclaim lost ground and demand their fair share of the economic recovery. The campaign also seeks to protect and enhance other terms and conditions which were previously part of the previous construction sector REA.
