Indeed refusal to attend Labour Court shows complete disrespect to concerns expressed by staff – says FSU
24 May 2023
The Financial Services Union have described the decision by Indeed not to show up for a scheduled Labour Court hearing as showing complete disrespect for the concerns expressed by their staff and for the institutions of the State set up to hear disputes.
The Labour Court had invited the Financial Services Union (FSU) and Indeed to a hearing on Wednesday to discuss the case issued against Indeed by the FSU over its redundancy processes.
Commenting on the situation Gareth Murphy, Head of industrial Relations and Campaigns with the FSU said:
“The FSU presented our case to the Labour Court in the absence of Indeed management. We focussed on the lack of fairness in the company’s redundancy procedures and how the Company did not act on feedback from employee representatives or adequately engage with them as required in legislation with a view to reaching agreement.
Unfortunately, the Company refused to show up to the Court showing a complete lack of respect for the concerns expressed by their staff and for the institutions of the State set up to hear disputes.
We await the Court’s recommendations and will present them to the staff and the Company when they are published.”
