The Executive Committee of the Irish Federation of University Teachers (IFUT) is to recommend acceptance of the Public Sector Agreement 2024 to 2026.
Following a meeting of the IFUT Executive Committee this morning (6 February 2024), the Committee unanimously agreed to recommend acceptance of the proposal to our membership. Our decision is grounded in the belief that the terms of the proposal represent the most favourable outcome attainable in the circumstances concerning pay. Importantly, our endorsement is driven by the notable emphasis placed on addressing the needs of those on lower pay grades within the sector.
In recommending acceptance of the proposal, the Executive Committee wishes to reassure our membership that we remain committed to leveraging every available opportunity and resource to combat precarious employment within our sector throughout the duration of the agreement, should it be accepted.
IFUT will host an informational webinar on Thursday 15 February 2024 at 1700 open to all IFUT members. Further details on this will be provided soon.
Furthermore, we will initiate an e-ballot for all affected members which includes members in retirement, commencing on Friday 16 February 2024 and concluding on Thursday 21 March 2024. Detailed instructions for participation will be communicated shortly.
