IFUT members in RCSI secure three year pay deal

IFUT members employed in the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland have secured a three year pay deal. 

Speaking following the count of members’ ballots in November, IFUT Deputy General Secretary, Miriam Hamilton said “We are delighted to have concluded a deal on behalf of our members in the RCSI after a few months of negotiations.  Our members in the RCSI demonstrated enormous flexibility, cooperation and good will throughout Covid.  A pay deal which lasts for the next three years provides certainty for our members in the face of uncertain times. 

This pay deal includes increases of 2.5% per annum for each of the three years on all earnings up to €100,000 and a further 1% increase per annum for each of the three years on all earnings over €100,000.  Our members voted overwhelmingly in favour of the pay proposals.”

Ms Hamilton went on to say “I want to thank the members of the IFUT RCSI Branch committee for their dedication and efforts on behalf of our members.  Our union depends upon our local activists and branches to ensure we are well organised and effective in our negotiations.”

IFUT represent several grades in the RCSI including lecturers, researchers, library and administration staff.  As a privately funded employer, the RCSI are not encompassed by the Public Service Agreements and therefore pay and other matters relating to conditions of employment are negotiated directly between IFUT and the RCSI.
