A ROW HAS developed within RTÉ after Communications Minister Denis Naughten said he wants the State broadcaster to publish the salaries of all those who earn over €100,000 a year.

As things stand, RTÉ publishes a list of its top 10 earners every two years. However, it is hoped that the broadcaster will become more transparent by publishing a longer list of salaries on an annual basis.

There have been calls for greater clarity within Montrose after the BBC released a full breakdown of its highest earners. It emerged that many women were not earning as much as their male counterparts.

We’re asking: Is it fair to ask RTÉ’s higher-earners to reveal their salaries?
