Go Party? Go Skafa! Go Skafa! Go Party!

In addition, from January 2019, the „additional contribution“ for ineligible public and public service items, including overtime payments not eligible for retirement, will no longer be payable. Recruitment and Conservation Issues As part of the agreement, trade unions could choose to submit a contribution to the Pay Commission (PSPC) on the recruitment and conservation problems identified in their initial 2017 report, which preceded the discussions that led to the PSSA. The Commission cited in the report voted in favour of its notes. Work-Life Balance The PSSA is committed to ensuring that the administration ensures that work-life balance agreements (including flexible work) are available as much as possible in public and public services. It states that disputes over the local and sectoral implementation of work-life balance agreements can be resolved through normal dispute resolution procedures. And she says the leadership of each sector must keep track of progress in gender balance in professional development. Adjusted pension contribution anomalies Two current „additional additional contributions“ (formerly „retirement contributions“) are being corrected under the ASSP. From January 2019, employees who entered the public service after January 2013 and are in the single public service system that was in place at the time will pay only two-thirds of the supplementary contribution rate. From January 2020, this figure will fall to one-third. This reflects the fact that the benefits of the single system differ from those of the previous system. The measure agreed between the parties to the Public Service Stability Agreement was formulated after discussions, as far as I know, complex and difficult. It offers a credible way to address this problem and is a fair and reasonable outcome for the 60,000 „newcomers“ who have entered the public service since January 2011.

There are more than 16,000 teachers, nearly 5,000 special needs assistants and nearly 10,000 nurses. Working Hours Although there is no general reduction in working time under the PSSA, the agreement has given officers the possibility of a permanent return to pre-Haddington Road hours on the basis of a proportional wage adjustment. Staff members were able to opt for this agreement at the beginning of the agreement (January-April 2018) and can do so for a period after the end of the agreement (January-April 2021). The agreement also contains a provision allowing the conversion of annual leave into flexible hours. The measure announced today also highlights the benefits to public servants of participating in the Public Service Stability Agreement. Productivity Measures The PSSA states that the productivity policies set out in the 2013 Lansdowne Road Agreement can continue to apply and be updated to reflect different renewal policies mentioned in the text. In addition, there is a need to introduce performance management systems into parts of the public service where they are not yet available. And it requires parties to discuss more open recruitment „if this is likely to meet organizational needs.“ The PSSA recognizes barriers to mobility in the public sector and is committed to reviewing the current rules on the inclusion of transfer and transport rights. The salaries of civil servants and civil servants will increase by 1.75% from this month.
