28. To ask the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment his proposals to begin the consultation process in relation to the proposed Industrial relations (amendment) Bill that sought to grant representative rights to retired workers on issues relating to their pensions schemes; if this consultation process will involve the representative bodies of those retired workers affected; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The Government have agreed to a timed amendment to the Industrial Relations (Provisions in Respect of Pension Entitlements of Retired Workers) Bill 2021. This will allow time, as I outlined on the floor of the Dáil, to examine the issues carefully and to ensure that all stakeholders are consulted. This process will commence as soon as possible.
