Ireland -Public sector pay deal not yet in the pocket -June 24, 2015

Members of the Civil and Public Services Union (CPSU) are becoming increasingly vocal about their disappointment over the terms of working hours and money.

The recently concluded Lansdowne Road agreement is still not accepted by several unions. As part of the agreement, which was reached in May, there will be a €1,000 salary increase in 2015 for those earning less than €65,000. Members of the Civil and Public Services Union (CPSU) are becoming increasingly vocal about their disappointment over the terms of working hours and money, whilst the Association of Higher Civil and Public Servants (AHCPS) announced it will be recommending its members to vote No in an upcoming ballot. The 23-member standing committee of the secondary school teachers’ union ASTI urged the organisation’s executive to recommend rejection. Trade unions Siptu, Impact, INTO and INMOO recommended to vote in favour; other unions still have to come up with a final recommendation.
