New National Pay Deal Agreement Reached

An agreement has been reached at the Labour Relations Commission over a new national pay deal.

Under the proposals for a new public service pay deal, government employees with earnings over €185,000 will face a 10% pay cut, RTÉ have reported.

Pay cuts for staff earning over €65,000 would begin at 5.5% and rise progressively to the 10% figure.

Premium payments for Sundays will be reduced to time and three quarters and overtime payments will be preserved at a lower rate, unions have said.

Union members will now be balloted on the proposals agreed, which if agreed will run from July 2013 until 2016.
