Minister Donohoe welcomes proposals issued by WRC

Public Expenditure and Reform Minister Paschal Donohoe this morning welcomed the proposals issued by the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).  These proposals would deliver an extension to the Lansdowne Road Agreement.

Minister Donohoe said:

These proposals aim to award pay increases for public service staff across the coming years in line with what is affordable to the State, put pension provision on a more sustainable footing and secure industrial peace so that our public service remains a rewarding place for those who work in it and continues to deliver for those who depend on it.  I will now take these proposals, which will see the Lansdowne Road Agreement extended, to Government. Arrangements will also be made to put them to ballot across the range of public service sectors to which they apply.
