After two years without an updated collective agreement, unions in provincial government are now consulting with their members over a possible deal. The proposed agreement would be effectively backdated to 1 June 2012 and run until 31 December 2015. There will be a 2% pay increase on 1 January 2015, followed by a 1% increase on 1 July. A lump sum of €450 will be paid to all workers when the agreement is signed. Other elements include support for those made redundant in terms of help to find new jobs, training and careers advice; action on jobs for disabled and young workers; regulation of flexible working arrangements and measures to take account of increased retirement ages.
