The Industrial Relations Act, which was introduced and enacted last year with the general approval of both employers' and workers' organizations and of all parties in the Oireachtas, is not a very lengthy measure,
but it is very comprehensive and it makes some important changes in the role of the State in industrial relations in this country. I shall try in this paper to give a brief exposition of the provisions of the Act and then to make some comparisons between our new legislation and practice and those of certain other countries. I shall not try to discuss every detail of the Act; in particular, I shall not deal at all with Part VII of the Act, which is transitional and temporary and could not be treated at all adequately here without risking a distortion of the general picture. It will, of course, be understood that I am not speaking as Chairman of the Labour Court and do not profess to give an official or authoritative interpretation of the intentions or effect of the Act.
