Chemical Industry at TUC in Brighton

Sep '08
On 8th September the Chemical Industries Association hosted a fringe meeting at TUC Congress in Brighton on Industrial Relations. The Chemical Industries Association works closely with the trade unions on a range of issues and the vast majority of our operational sites have union representation.

The speakers at the fringe meeting were, Ed Sweeney, Chair of ACAS, Jim Mowatt, Unite and Steve Elliott, Chief Executive, CIA.

Speaking at the event Ed Sweeney expressed admiration for the Chemical Industries Association, which has the vast majority of its sites under union representation, and continues to successfully work in conjunction with trade unions across a number of employment issues.

"Continued good relations between the CIA and the trade unions, means the sector is in a good position to provide support to both its employees and managers. The parties make sensible use of Acas' services, not only to resolve disputes, but also for advice on wider employment relations issues."

Jim Mowatt of Unite said "All companies need to work closely with trade unions and their members in these difficult times. Overall the chemical industry has good experience of industrial relations and the employers in the industry need to make sure they provide the best possible working conditions."

Steve Elliott added "Working with ACAS and the trade unions to make sure we get the employment part of our work right allows chemical businesses in the UK to successfully compete in a global market place and also provide good jobs with our workforce having a high skill level."
