Public Service Pay Agreement
The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO), late on Friday, 27th July 2018, were notified that, due to circumstances outside of the control of the Public Service Pay Commission (PSPC), it is not now possible to complete the first phase of its work within the timeframe previously indicated to the trade unions.
As members are aware, the Commission had advised that they intended to issue their report towards the end of July, beginning of August. This schedule has now been revised. The PSPC have advised that it has been delayed by a number of weeks due to circumstances outside of their control. Therefore the report is now expected towards the end of August 2018.
As members are aware, it was agreed on 4th August 2017, that public service employers, represented by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, and staff representatives, will meet within four weeks of the receipt of any report for the Pay Commission, to consider any proposals that may arise on foot of the report from that Commission, in line with the commitments given in the PSSA 2018 - 2020.
As members are also aware, under the provisions of Paragraph 3, of the Public Service Pay Commission, it is a matter for the Public Service Pay Commission, as an independent body, to set out their schedule. While the INMO is disappointed at this delay, our focus remains on meeting with the employer, on receipt of the recommendations, with a view to progressing the matters of importance to nurses and midwives.
In light of the above the emergency Executive Council meeting, which is scheduled to take place on 28th August 2018, will take place and a correspondence will issue to members immediately thereafter.
Thank you for your attention to this note.
