CONCILIATION BOARD CONSIDERED FOR LIMERICK TRADE DISPUTES

Limerick, Ireland – The Limerick Technical Education Committee convened to discuss a significant proposal aimed at resolving trade disputes within the city. The Town Clerk submitted a letter urging the committee to appoint a representative to the Conciliation Board, a body proposed for arbitration in trade-related conflicts. This initiative was suggested by the Mayor in an effort to promote harmony and fair resolutions in disagreements between local businesses and workers.

During the meeting, the members deliberated on the potential benefits of such a board. Mr Mclnerney, expressing strong support, noted the importance of having a mechanism for resolving disputes and cited a long-standing conflict between trades and master builders as an example. He proposed that Mr Patrick O’Brien be appointed as the committee’s delegate to the Conciliation Board.

Father Murphy, however, raised a pertinent concern. He highlighted the necessity for all parties involved in the disputes to be willing to accept the board’s findings. Without unanimous cooperation, any attempts at resolution could prove futile.

After an extended discussion, the decision to appoint a representative was postponed. The committee members acknowledged the need for a clear consensus from the trades involved in the disputes regarding their willingness to accept the board’s conclusions. This stance was deemed crucial to ensure the effectiveness of the Conciliation Board in addressing conflicts and achieving equitable resolutions for all parties concerned.
