Changes in the Statute

The Employment and Industrial Relations Act, 2002 (EIRA) specifies that every alteration of the rules of a registered trade union or employers’ association shall be registered with the Registrar. Any such alteration shall not take effect except from the date of its registration or from such later date as may be specified in the rules.

The Registrar shall not register any rules or alteration to the rules if:

(a) The applicants for registration have not been duly authorised to apply for registration; or

(b) Any of the purposes of the trade union or employers’ association is unlawful; or

(c) The application for registration or the rules of the union or association are not in conformity with the provisions of the EIRA.
