MEMBERS OF THE Public Service Executive Union have voted in favour of the Haddington Road public pay agreement.

In a ballot, 78 per cent of members voted in favour of it with 22 per cent against. The union represents around 10,000 public service workers in the Civil Service, An Post, Eircom, the National Lottery, FÁS and other organisations.

In a statement, the union said that as members have approved the agreement and the union had already registered it, no further action is required. It also said that this means members are protected from the imposition of FEMPI legislation which imposes pay cuts and other measures on unions that reject the agreement.

Last month the Association of Higher Civil Servants also voted to back the deal which is aimed at reducing the public pay bill by €1 billion between now and 2015.

UNITE remains the only union to have rejected the proposals after a ballot.
