Government Commitments

Government has committed to:

  • No further reductions in pay rates over and above those implemented in 2009 and 2010;
  • No compulsory redundancies (where they did not already exist) as long as staff continue to co-operate fully with necessary flexibilities and redeployments; and
  • An extension of the period within which the pay reductions are disregarded for the purposes of calculating pensions
  • A review of the position on public service pay in the Spring of each year of the Agreement.
