Trade union actions As with all previous public service agreements, a labour dispute is excluded in situations where the employer complies with the agreement. The agreement provides for a binding procedure to deal with problems that arise without resorting to trade union action. These restrictions do not apply to matters not covered by the Agreement. Details of the previous agreement, the Croke Park Agreement 2010-2014, you will find here the working time Although there is no general reduction in working time under PSSA, the agreement allowed employees to return permanently to pre-Haddington Road hours on the basis of a proportional wage adjustment. Staff were able to opt for this agreement at the beginning of the agreement (January-April 2018) and can do so for a period after its expiry (January-April 2021). The agreement also contains a provision to transform annual leave into flexible working hours. Although these low-quality fares (which are worth 10% less at each scale) were removed at the insistence of unions as part of the 2013 Haddington Road agreement, “new entrants” still had longer pay scales than their counterparts for longer, with two lower pay points at the beginning of each scale. In some ranks, some allowances have also been abolished for newcomers. By the time the agreement expires, more than 90% of civil servants and civil servants will earn as much or more than they did when wage cuts were introduced in 2010 and (for the best incomes) in 2013. Almost a quarter (low wages) have been completely removed from the so-called “pension levy”, introduced in 2009.
The rest will be reduced, the rest being converted into a “supplementary pension contribution”. Outsourcing, agency staff and related issues Despite management`s attempts to dilute them heavily, PSSA maintains all the subcontracting measures acquired by the unions in the negotiations that resulted in the previous Croke Park (2010) and Haddington Road (2013) agreements. Newcomers The term “newcomer” refers to individuals who began working in the public service (and related organizations for compensation purposes) after 2011, when the government imposed poor quality salary scales for new staff without agreement.

The agreement itself is more comprehensive and contains, on certain issues, more details than what is said here. For more information, readers are advised to refer to the final text of the full agreement.
