Members at insurance company Irish Life have voted overwhelmingly to accept a Labour Court recommendation which could result in a pay increase of up to 7%. Trade union Unite called the result a ‘great deal’. The deal followed extensive talks at the Labour Relations Commission and Labour Court to avert industrial unrest. Pay increases by a minimum of 2%, lower-paid clerical staff will receive pay rises of up to 7 per cent under the recommendation. Workers will be compensated for the abolition of a long-standing profit-sharing scheme through a once-off lump sum payment of €1,500.
