IFUT members have voted by an overwhelming majority in favour of the new Public Service Agreement representing a 97% ‘yes’ majority in the ballots cast.
The Agreement, ‘Building Momemtum: A New Public Service Agreement’ 2021-2022 provides for increases in pay, commitments to reductions in working hours, restoration of overtime rates and protection on public service outsourcing, all of which deliver positive outcomes and potential for IFUT members and workers in the higher education sector.
The total return of votes for this ballot was higher than for the last national pay round in 2017.
This shows the clearly increased engagement of our members and is a tribute to their commitment, resilience and dedication.
IFUT will now work closely with Congress and all stakeholders to ensure the Agreement is implemented in the fullest understanding of the needs of our members and that any future issues arising related to the Agreement are fully and positively addressed.
