Review of Building Momentum

The public service unions have reached agreement with Government on an extension to the Building Momentum pay deal which will now run to December 2023. The increases provided for in the agreement are set out below. These increases will also apply to pensions of retired public service employees. It is good news for retirees that pension parity has again been maintained, at least until the ends of 2023.

  • 3% backdated to 2 Feb 2022
  • 1% backdated to 1 October 2022 [already agreed under the original agreement]

A date for the payment (with arrears) of the two increases referred to above is awaited and will be posted here once known.

  • 2% from 1 March 2023
  • 1.5% from 1 October 2023
