    The paper explains the operation of the Joint Labor Committee ('wage council') system and locates it within the Irish industrial relations model. The article goes on to describe why the validity of the JLC system began to be questioned and the reasons giving rise to challenges to it before the Superior Courts. The article then looks at the decision of the High Court in the John Grace case and analyses the reforms to the system proposed in the Industrial Relations Amendment (No. 3) Bill 2011. Before concluding, the article then looks at how the challenge to the JLC system is reflective of broader trends in labor market regulation under Irish, and EU, law.
