Half of Irish people want to see public sector pay restored
The poll comes as gardaí suspended three further strike days planned for this month.

HALF OF IRISH people say that pay restoration for public servants should be made across the board.

That’s according to a new Claire Byrne Live/Amárach Research poll, released last night.

The poll comes as gardaí suspended three further strike days planned for this month, pending a ballot of members on a set of Labour Court recommendations.

The poll asked 1,000 Irish adults: Now a pay deal for the Gardaí has been recommended to government, should other public service pay restoration claims be accepted?

In total, 50% of Irish people said yes, 31% said no and 19% of people said they don’t know.

A host of public sector unions are expected to make claims for pay restoration following wins for bus drivers and gardaí, while teachers are on strike today.
