Click here for a TUI News Special which will issue to members in the week beginning 8th October. This bulletin contains comprehensive information on all aspects of the proposal.

Background

On September 24th, 2018, following engagement with unions, the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, on behalf of the Government, issued the outcome of discussions regarding salary scale issues that had taken place (under Section 4 of the Public Service Stability Agreement 2018-2020). The outcome contains a proposal in relation to salary scales for new entrants to the public service (i.e. those who commenced service on or after 1st January 2011).

What are you being asked?

You are being asked if you accept the proposed measure on salary scale issues in the context of the Union’s ongoing campaign for pay equality.

What is the TUI Executive Committee recommending?

The TUI Executive Committee is not issuing a recommendation for the ballot.

Why has the TUI Executive Committee not made a recommendation?

The Executive Committee noted that the proposal has varying implications for TUI members, depending on sector, grade and career stage. It was therefore decided that given the significant implications of either acceptance or rejection of the proposal, members will be provided with comprehensive information on all aspects of the proposal so that they can make a considered decision. This information is set out in this bulletin.

When will the ballot take place?

Ballot papers will be posted from TUI Head Office on Tuesday, October 9th, 2018. Completed ballot papers must be returned (in the envelopes provided) to the Union’s auditors, Deloitte, by 5pm on Thursday, October 25th, 2018. (To ensure that completed ballots reach Deloitte by the closing date, they should be posted by Tuesday, October 23rd at the latest).
