On Friday 26th January, the Officers of the Public Services Committee (PSC) of ICTU briefed the 19 affiliate unions on the terms of the new public sector pay agreement following almost 22 hours of continued talks at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).

The PSC Officers advised affiliates that the pay terms of the new agreement, valued at 10.25% over 2.5 years, represented the “absolute maximum achievable” through negotiations at this time, and the outcome of a challenging negotiations process, which commenced at the end of November 2023.

Proposed Public Sector Pay Adjustments for the period 1st January 2024 to 30th June 2026

2024

  • A general round increase in annualised basic salary for all public servants of 2.25% or €1,125, whichever is greater, on 1st January 2024.
  • A general round increase in annualised basic salary for all public servants of 1% on 1st June 2024.
  • A general round increase in annualised basic salary for all public servants of 1% or €500, whichever is greater, on 1st October 2024.

2025

  • A general round increase in annualised basic salary for all public servants of 2% or €1,000, whichever is greater, on 1st March 2025.
  • A general round increase in annualised basic salary for all public servants of 1% on 1st August 2025.

The affiliate unions have been asked to consider the terms of the deal and begin the process of organising ballots of union members, with a balloting period to extend until Monday 25th March, in order to provide adequate time for all unions to consider the terms of the new agreement and to ballot their members.
