The Evening Fix: Now with the happiest eater ever

Here are the things we learned, loved and shared today.

SIPTU says workers should accept revised new public pay deal

The country’s biggest trade union says the Haddington Road deal maintains protection against redundancy or a major redeployment.

BRENDAN HOWLIN has said the legislation cutting the pay of public workers on over €65,000 a year will be discussed by TDs next week. In the Dáil this evening, Howlin said the legislation – the ‘Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest Bill 2013′ – will begin its passage through the Dáil on Tuesday.

Similar bills in the past have been rushed through the Dáil within a week, so TDs are likely to have finished dealing with the legislation by this time next week.
