Ireland - Unions demand is up to 5% pay increase - December 31, 2015

The Private Sector Committee of trade union confederation Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) has advised to private sector unions to seek pay rises of between 2.5% and 5% in 2016. In a briefing issued to all affiliates, the ICTU said that unions should be in a position to seek these pay adjustments, based on analysis conducted by the Nevin Institute and on ‘prevailing conditions’ in the sector. It also urged unions to give consideration to seeking the Living Wage, which is currently fixed at €11.50 per hour. Payment of the Living Wage is a key component of the Congress Charter for Fair Conditions at Work, on which the ICTU has been campaigning.
