Ireland - The trade union bargaining demands for 2017 - January 01, 2017

The Irish Congress of Trade Unions Private Sector Committee is advising affiliate unions in the sector to seek pay increases in 2017 that would see basic pay rise by at least €1000 annually, or 4% - whichever figure is higher. The committee monitored pay bargaining developments over the course of 2016 and trends across a range of key measures that impact on the living standards of workers. The country's largest employers' group described the unions' demand for a 4% pay increase for private sector workers in 2017 as a ‘try on’ and said there was no justification for an across-the-board wage increase. The ICTU replied in an open letter.
