INTO and TUI have voted in faovur of public sector pay deal - see their statements below

INTO Statement
Members of Ireland’s largest teachers’ union, the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation (INTO), have voted by a significant margin to accept the proposals in the Review of Building Momentum in an electronic ballot of members.
The union announced the result today (30 September).

  • 18,795 members (80%) of voters supported the agreement

  • 4,783 members (20%) voted against   

  • The turnout was 57% 

    The current cost-of-living crisis demanded a response from Government. The Central Executive Committee of the union scrutinised the offer negotiated by the ICTU Public Services Committee in August, and issued a formal recommendation to the membership, urging acceptance of the relatively short agreement which is to run until December 2023. A large majority of members have now voted overwhelmingly to accept the proposals.

    TUI Statement
    In a national ballot, TUI members have voted by a margin of 85% to 15% to accept the WRC proposal arising from the review of the Building Momentum Agreement. 

    TUI will now bring the result to a meeting of the ICTU Public Services Committee on Friday, 7th October.

    What does the WRC proposal provide for? 
    The proposal provides for the following pay increases: 
  • 3% backdated to 2nd February 2022 
  • 2% from 1st March 2023 and  
  • 1.5% or €750 (whichever is greater) from 1st October 2023 

    Additionally, a 1% increase is payable from 1st October 2022 under the original Building Momentum Agreement and for some TUI grades, the sectoral bargaining process for the 1% due from 1st February 2022 has not been finalised.  For further detail, click here for the TUI News ballot special that issued earlier this month.
