  • Global Telesales | Communications Workers' Union
    under the 2004 Industrial Relations Act Last week IRN reported on a case involving Dell Direct and the CWU in which the Labour Court taking its line from the Supreme Court ruling in Ryanair decided that a group of workers who claimed they were denied representation could not resile from what the Court decided is a de facto collective body See IRN 23 11 In this case however there was no issue over whether a trade dispute existed between parties According to the Court both sides agreed that the matter was properly before the Court pursuant to Section 2 of the Industrial Relations Amendment Act 2001 as amended The Court was thus empowered to hear and deal with the dispute pursuant to Section 5 of the Act The dispute centred on a new pay and reward system which was introduced in 2007 as part of cost saving measures brought in to address trading difficulties As part of the changes the company reassigned salary band II staff to the former salary band I now known as salary band A The maximum point was reduced from 13 08 to 11 25 per hour Workers who were earning in excess of 11 25 per hour at that time were red circled on their current rate Workers below 11 25 per hour were capped at that level LEGITIMATE EXPECTATION The union claimed the new salary scales had a detrimental effect on the income of some workers namely those on former salary band II who had not yet reached the maximum of the scale The union also maintained that this category of workers had a legitimate expectation that they would over time reach the maximum of salary band II and that this opportunity had now been denied to them The company contended that the effect of the reduction in salary potential for some former salary band II workers was offset by the introduction of a performance bonus scheme This scheme provided all affected staff with the opportunity to earn significantly increased levels of income over and above the maximum of the former band II The Court found that as a result of the salary restructuring some workers on the former salary band II were uniquely disadvantaged The workers affected had a reasonable expectation that they would subject to performance reviews progress over time to the maximum point of the Salary Band However the Court noted that no individual actually lost money but rather lost potential earnings into the future Furthermore almost all of the Workers affected have in fact earned more money under the new pay structures than they would have earned under the discontinued structures albeit subject to the achievement of higher and different performance standards The Court recommended compensation of 2 000 to those salary band II staff who had been earning less than the maximum point of the scale in November 2007 The company should also examine the actual pay outcomes for the staff affected over the years since 2007 and put
