New Security ERO signed into law

1st October 2015

A new Employment Regulation Order was today signed into law by Minister for Business & Employment, Gerald Nash TD.

Speaking earlier today, ISIA President Alan Durnan welcomed the ERO, saying "The ISIA believes that the new Security ERO is critical to ensure that our industry continues to attract and retain the best people in a sector where security personnel protect people, information and critical infrastructure of significant value to every business in Ireland. Our Security guarding industry has been undermined significantly since 2011 with a race to the bottom by employers willing to pay below previous ERO pay levels and by frameworks and tenders which focus solely on price with little regard to quality, training, safety, value-add, innovation or transfer regulations."
