Circular Letter 0015/2018 |Revised Salary Scales|

Re: Circular Letter 0015/2018- Option to revert to pre-Haddington Road Agreement Working Hours

The Department of Education and Skills recently issued Circular Letter 0015/2018  in respect of the application of measures in accordance with the Public Service Stability Agreement 2018-2020 (Extension of Lansdowne Road Agreement).

The Circular allows for the option for staff to revert to their pre-Haddington Road Agreement Working Hours. It has been agreed under paragraph 2.12.2 of the Public Service Stability Agreement, that ‘an opportunity shall be offered between 1 January and 1 April 2018 and after the expiry of this Agreement (1 January to 1 April 2021) to staff members whose weekly working hours were increased to permanently revert to the pre-Haddington Road Agreement Hours.’ Any individuals exercising this option will have their pay reduced commensurately, in line with previous arrangements.

If your working hours were increased under the Haddington Road Agreement with effect from 1 July 2015 and you now wish to apply to revert to your pre-Haddington Road Agreement working hours please email Human Resources at  hr@dit.ie by the deadline of 1st April 2018 and your application will be reviewed. Please note that while this option is available to all staff members, it is subject to the business needs of the organisation. While the deadline of 1st April is not open-ended, if it poses a particular difficulty for you in making an application (e.g. currently on leave), please contact HR at hr@dit.ie at the first opportunity.

 

Re: Public Service Stability Agreement 2013 – 2020 (Haddington Road Agreement/ Lansdowne Road Agreement) and the Public Service Pay and Pensions Act 2017: Application of revised rates of salary with effect from 1st January 2018.

Please note the introduction of revised salary scales with effect from 1st January 2018 as per Circular Letter 0084/2017. The main provisions are as follows:  

1.  Salary Increase with effect from 1 January 2018

Under the terms of the Public Service Stability Agreement 2018 – 2020, whole-time annual basic salaries are increased by 1% with effect from 1 January 2018.

 2.  Restoration of FEMPI Act 2013 Pay Reductions for those earning between €65,000 and €110,000 per annum with effect from 1 January 2018

The Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest Act 2013 implemented pay reductions for public servants on annualised remuneration of €65,000 or greater. Where a public servant in receipt of annualised remuneration of between €65,000 and €110,000 had their salary reduced under the terms of the Haddington Road Agreement/FEMPI Act 2013, one half of the reduction was restored to his/her salary with effect from the 1 April 2017.

The second half of the reduction will be restored to salaries with effect from 1 January 2018. The effect of this is that the FEMPI Act 2013 reductions for public servants on annualised remuneration of between €65,000 and €110,000 will cease with effect from 1 January 2018.

 3.  Staff on salaries in excess of €110,000

In accordance with section 17 of the Public Service Pay and Pensions Act, the 1% increase to basic salary in this category is calculated by reference to the pre-HRA cut salary (i.e. generally the January 2010 salary) and not the actual salary paid (i.e. the salary effective 1 April 2017)

4.  Allowances

Allowances which are calculated as a specific percentage or specified portion of basic pay will be recalculated by reference to the revised rates of pay with effect from 1 January 2018. Fixed allowances are not affected.

5.  Overtime

Payment in respect of overtime for eligible grades rendered on or after 1 January 2018 should be calculated by reference to the revised rates of pay with effect from 1 January 2018.
