Siptu pay deal vote


Sir, – The Siptu executive recommended acceptance of the second Lansdowne Road deal because it “would reverse most pay cuts imposed after the economic crash” (Home News, August 9th). This is simply not true. The continued imposition of a pension levy and additional unpaid working hours means that all public sector workers, including those on the lowest wages, are on lower hourly pay than before the crash. It’s simple maths. – Yours, etc,
