TUI votes to accept public sector pay deal

Members of the Teachers’ Union of Ireland (TUI) have voted to accept the latest public sector pay deal.

In a national ballot, members voted by a margin of 82% to 18% in favour of the agreement.

The TUI will now bring the result to a meeting of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) Public Services Committee on Monday 25 March.

Other public sector unions and staff associations are currently in the process of balloting their members ahead of the ICTU meeting.

Agreement was reached with the Government at the Workplace Relations Commission in January on a deal that will provide for pay increases of 10.25% and over a two-and-a-half year period.

The proposals are worth up to 17.3% for lower paid workers.

The previous public service pay agreement, Building Momentum, expired on 31 December 2023 and the proposed new deal will run from January 2024 to June 2026.

If the agreement is ratified, the first of a series of pay increases will come in the form of a 2.25% increase backdated to 1 January.

The pay deal will cost around €3.6 billion and includes a local bargaining mechanism to allow individual grades, groups and categories of public servants to raise specific issues.
