Labour Court’s construction findings approved

The Government has approved a Labour Court recommendation that will set new minimum pay rates to workers in the construction sector.

Damien English (Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail) said that he had formally accepted the court’s assessment under the Sectoral Employment process.

The minister’s role is to ensure that the Labour Court’s findings – made after consultations with interested parties – comply with the provisions of the Industrial Relations Act 2015.


This is the third such recommendation from the Labour Court in the construction sector. If approved by the Oireachtas, it will take effect by means of a Sectoral Employment Order (SEO).

 The Labour Court recommendation sets new hourly pay rates from 1 February 2022 to 31 January 2023, and further increases from 1 February 2023.
