Use your vote!

Fórsa members working in the public service and non-commercial State agencies are now voting to decide whether their union backs acceptance or rejection of the proposed new agreement, Building Momentum.

The proposed deal will affect your pay and working conditions over the coming years. It also includes important advances additional working time introduced for many staff under the 2013 Haddington Road agreement. And it contains important safeguards on public service outsourcing.

The pay provisions skew the deal strongly in favour of the lower-paid, with bigger percentage increases for everyone who earns less than €50,000 a year. That’s one of the reasons that Fórsa’s elected National Executive is recommending ACCEPTANCE in this ballot.

Because of Covid-19 restrictions, Fórsa members can only vote via our electronic voting platform. You need a unique voter code to enable you to vote, and this code has been sent to eligible Fórsa members by email.

If you’ve not received your unique code via email, and you believe you are eligible to vote, you should contact our email helpline at immediately.

Don’t let others make this crucial decision about your pay and working conditions. Make sure your voice is heard by casting your vote before 5.00pm on Thursday 11th February.

It’s never been more important – or more easy – to get the protections and benefits of union membership. Join Fórsa HERE or contact us HERE.
