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.
