Although these lower scales (which were worth 10% less at each point on each scale) were removed at the request of the unions under the 2013 Haddington Road agreement, “new entrants” continued to have longer pay scales than their longer colleagues, with two wage points lower at the beginning of each scale. Some grades have also seen the elimination of certain allowances for newcomers. It`s the beginning of the week and here`s what you need to know. The LRA text describes the role of the implementation group with respect to the agreement itself: new entrants The term “new entrants” refers to people who started working in the public service after 2011 (and are linked to it for wage purposes) when the government issued, without agreement, lower pay scales for new staff. Until the agreement expires, more than 90% of public servants and civil servants will earn as much, or more than when wage cuts were introduced in 2010 and (for the best income) in 2013. Nearly a quarter (low wages) have been completely removed from the “retirement tax” introduced in 2009. The rest will make cuts in these payments, the rest being turned into “additional contributions.” There are no provisions in these agreements that prevent the outsourcing of new services. Subsequently, the rules of the Croke Park Agreement, including Section 1.24 of the agreement (as confirmed in Section 5 of the Haddington Road Agreement) are activated (referring to the LRC/Labour Tribunal). In accordance with Section 6.1 of the Lansdowne Road Contract, the enforcement group covered by this section decides, in the event of a dispute, the outsourcing of existing services and the treatment of anomalies resulting from the agreement. The Lansdowne Road Agreement, negotiated in May, launched the process of reversing wage and pension cuts introduced since 2008 for public service staff. The agreement also requires management to work with unions to minimize the use of temporary workers.
