Unions back An Post pay deal

The group of unions representing workers at An Post has backed a new one-year pay settlement which will deliver a pay rise of 2.75% for 2020.

Fórsa members concluded a ballot last Friday (5th March), backing the deal by a margin of almost 95%, while members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) and the AHCPS also gave their approval.

Fórsa official Denis Keane said the deal reflected the exceptional work of members during the course of the Covid crisis: “We’re happy with this new deal because it does reflect that it has been an exceptional 12 months.

“It’s been widely acknowledged that staff at An Post have provided an exemplary service in challenging conditions, accompanied by a significant increase in demand for their services. It is good to have that acknowledged in real terms,” he said.
