Lansdowne Road Agreement 2

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. Productivity measures The PSSA states that the productivity measures set out in the 2013 Lansdowne Road Agreement can continue to apply and be updated to reflect different renewal policies mentioned in the text. It also requires that performance management systems be put in place in certain parts of the public service where they do not yet exist. And it engages the parties to discuss more open recruitment “where appropriate to meet organizational needs.” The agreements confirm that it is still permissible for work “reasonably considered to be small” to be outsourced using normal consultation procedures [in accordance with the Commission of Information and Consultation Act 2006]. A progressive agreement The PSSA is structured in such a way that the under-income earns relatively more than the best incomes and, by 2020, 73% of civil servants and civil servants will earn more than 7%. During the term of the agreement: the government and civil service unions reached a draft agreement on a wage agreement succeeding the Lansdowne Road Agreement. * Wage restoration is carried out gradually over the life of the agreement: the Lansdowne Road Agreement reaffirms the previous commitments made in the Croke Park and Haddington Road Agreements to employ, where appropriate, direct labour. However, under that agreement, all cost comparisons for assessing the provision of services between the direct provision of work and the ITA exclude `the total cost of labour`. While both of these provisions fell far short of the overtime restoration introduced for some officials and officials under the 2013 Haddington Road Agreement, they do give options to employees for whom time is more important than money. . .
