The Master Painters and Decorators of Ireland (MPDI) is the representative group for painters and decorators in Ireland. We represent the views of our members on a local, industry and national level.
By bringing the industry know how and experience of all our members together we provide a powerful voice to painters and decorators around Ireland. The MPDI is widely recognised for its expertise and eminent history and it is respected throughout the construction industry.
The MPDI is one of the longest member associations of the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) and through our association we have the platform to reach out to Government, to State institutions, to local authorities and all the various construction industry stakeholders.
Being a member of the MPDI also brings a range of other benefits including:
Contracting – Members of the MPDI have access to all the CIF’s extensive expertise on contracting, helping to guide members through any contracting questions or queries they might have. With so many tenders and public contracting issues facing painters and contractors this benefit is widely used by MPDI members and helps guide them to take better business decisions.
Industrial Relations (IR) – IR is becoming an increasingly significant issue for painting and decorating companies. In the current economic climate handling IR issues correctly has never been more important. Members of the MPDI have access to IR experts who provide a range of information and advice. This includes a guide to employment conditions in the industry, employee handbooks, employment and industrial relations updates, up to date information on new legislation and policies, contracts of employment, advice on temporary layoffs and redundancies and advice for handling sensitive IR issues such as bullying and harassment, disputes, disciplinary procedures, grievance handling, data protection and use of email.
Lobbying and Public Affairs – As a valued association within the CIF, the MPDI has access to the Federation’s immense lobbying and public affairs expertise and experience. The CIF is highly regarded amongst politicians, the civil service, the Irish business network and other important stakeholders. The MPDI will work on behalf of all our members to have representations made about issues of concern.
Information – MPDI members receive regular updates and bulletins on all the latest developments and issues relating to the Irish construction sector and the economic conditions surrounding it.
Networking opportunities – MPDI members are invited to attend a variety of different CIF briefings, events, meetings and conferences, allowing them to mix with other CIF members and get to know important contacts throughout the industry.
