The sole recognised trade union for bank officials in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Great Britain is the Irish Bank Officials’ Association (IBOA). Since February 2000 AIB and the IBOA have conducted their relations in keeping with agreed Partnership principles, which underpin the approach to be taken in employee and industrial relations. Both sides recognise that some staff are not members of the IBOA and that the bank is responsible for consulting and communicating with them in the spirit of the partnership principles. The bank continues to engage with the Irish Bank Officials' Association on a range of issues including job security.
