Ireland -ITUC’s public service committee approves Lansdowne Road Agreement -September 16, 2015

The Public Services Committee (PSC) of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) has approved the Lansdowne Road Agreement by an aggregate ballot after individual unions balloted their membership over the summer. The Lansdowne Road Agreement extends the main provisions of the Haddington Road Agreement until September 2018, and restores around €2,000 to the pay of most public servants in three phases between January 2016 and September 2017. The pay restoration will be achieved through a combination of adjustments to the public service pension levy and a partial reversal of the 2010 public service pay cuts. The agreement that delivers, after seven years of pay cuts, wage improvements across many sectors of the economy was controversial, with several trade unions in favour or against the deal.
