Government to overhaul non-union worker rights laws

Workers are to be given a new way to ensure they get a fair deal from their employer, even if their employer does not recognise trade unions.

The government has announced plans to revamp the laws on industrial relations so that non-unionised workers can go to the Labour Court.

The Court will then be able to issue rulings on employers, even if they refuse to recognise trade unions or allow collective bargaining.
