Revised education pay scales on forsa.ie
by Róisín McKane
Pay scales for most education staff have been updated on the Fórsa website, reflecting the first income adjustment under the Building Momentum public service agreement negotiated by Fórsa and other unions, and overwhelmingly accepted in a ballot of Fórsa members early in 2021.
The 1% adjustment came into effect on 1st October and applies to most grades in the public service.
Next year will bring further average increases totalling 2%. A ‘sectoral bargaining fund’ will award the equivalent of a 1% increase from 1st February 2022. Most grades will get a straight 1% increase, though a small number are using the available funds to address outstanding claims or awards.
Then, a second general round increase of 1% of gross pay or €500 a year, whichever is the greater, kicks in in October 2022.
Fórsa's civil service division represents over 30,000 civil service workers including clerical, administrative, technical and professional staff and service officers.
