Unite to recommend acceptance of public sector pay deal

The Unite trade union is to recommend acceptance of the public sector pay deal which was agreed last month.

The proposals provide for pay increases of 10.25% and over a two-and-a-half year period.

Unite said the decision to back the deal was made following a period of workplace consultation, and notwithstanding continuing concerns relating in particular to local bargaining.

Balloting will commence next week and will conclude on 11 March.

Unite said it will then cast the union’s votes at the ICTU Public Services Committee meeting which is scheduled for 25 March.

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.

It was agreed last month following talks at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) involving unions, staff association and Government representatives.

If the deal is ratified by union members, the first of a series of pay increases will come in the form 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.
