Fórsa seeks leave improvement
Fórsa has sought the formal application, in the non-commercial semi-state sector, of improved leave arrangements won for clerical and admin staff under the Public Services Stability Agreement (PSSA).
The changes, which are now being applied in the civil service, will give clerical and executive officers with 12 years’ service an extra day’s annual leave from 1st January 2018. Those with 14 years’ service will get a further day.
Fórsa head of division Angela Kirk has tabled the issue for discussion at the next meeting of the state sector PSSA oversight committee, which monitors the implementation of the agreement. “We believe the changes should apply to relevant grades in the non-commercial semi states,” she said.
