Approx 7% payrise or €2k per nurse. FG, the party of fiscal rectitude!


All other unions lining up now. Equality across all public servants. Why would nurses get more money and not teachers, etc


Holidays - That's why, but will it ever be said publicly? :nin

I don't know how much holidays nurses get, but the average public servant with flexitime has over 40 days a year, and has much more flexibility than a teacher as to when they are taken. So they aren't that much worse off than teachers.

this depresses me as its the canary in the coal mine. Irish nurses are well paid, yet after a few days strike they get a significant increase.

next up the entire public sector, on the radio today yates stated nurses represent 1/9 of the public service so today cost us 100M and to pay for it they have had to scrape the pot. if the rest of the public service gets the increases which it will that's 900M.

u.s recession incoming/brexit/chinese banks imploding and europe/italy about to tear the EU apart.

2020/2021=2007/2008

2022 - public sector workers pay reduced.....

do we ever learn?

This is true...

As a recently returned Civil Servant I've noticed leave has increased by at least two days for many grades since my last time there over twenty years ago.

I've 26 days annual leave with the opportunity to work up 1.5 additional days over each four-week period.

That's 13 X 1.5 = 19.5 plus 26 = 45.5 days off! (Oh and I'll get an extra day annual leave next year due to service.)

Increments are an incredible increase - very noticeable in the pay packet. Some are as wide as €1,500.00 - with the additional pay agreements (1.75% due in September) on top of that.

Why did I ever leave in the first place?
