IFUT members vote to accept Haddington Road Agreement
The majority of members in the Irish Federation of University Teachers approved the revised public sector pay agreement.

THE IRISH FEDERATION OF University Teachers has voted to accept the Haddington Road Agreement.

Of the members who voted, 62 per cent voted in favour of the revised public sector pay agreement, while 38 per cent voting against the deal.

The IFUT is recognised as the representative of university staff and negotiates salaries and conditions of employment.


The union which represents academics rejected the revised Croke Park Agreement by a margin of three to one in April of this year.

Speaking to, General Secretary Mike Jennings said they were pleased that the result was “clear cut”. He said “it is obvious that the members  saw that the alternative would be something a lot worse imposed by government if it was opposed”.

There are 2114 members in the union. A total of 794 members voted in the ballot.
