TALKS ON A new public sector pay deal continues today at the Labour Relations Commision in Dublin.

Three teacher Unions – who all rejected the Croke Park II deal – are meeting at the LRC talks table to debate an alternative to the deal.

The Irish Federation of University Teachers are holding a meeting this morning to decide whether they will join the talks or not.

The three health unions, including the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation and the Health Service Executive, were all involved in talks yesterday that ran into last night.

SIPTU will also meet with the LRC later today.

Meanwhile, Junior Finance  Minister Brian Hayes told RTÉ News that the original target of €300 million savings for the year might not be met but they still hope to make a saving of €1 billion between now and 2015.
