Pay Increase - Academic, Research & Counselling Staff

Pay Increase - Academic, Research & Counselling Staff

24 February, 2023

Circular 001/2023 was issued by the Department of Further, Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science (DFHERIS)  on 20th February 2023 and provides details of the delayed Sectoral Bargining section of the Building Momentum Public Sector Pay Agreement for grades represented by the TUI.

This includes all Assistant Lecturer, Lecturer and Senior Lecturer Grades, Student Consellor Grades and Research staff on the Research Career Framework Grades in MTU.

The circular provides for  general 1% pay increase for these grades with effect from 1st February 2023.   This increase will be reflected in the February payroll.

The next pay increase under the Building Momentum agreement is due on 1st March 2023 and applied to all established grades.  We are awaiting the circular from DFHERIS to sanction that increase and will notify staff when that will be applied.

Information on current payscales and copies of circulars are publsihed on our website.  See link: pay-scales

I would like to acknowledge the considerable additional work undertaken by the staff in payroll and HR in applying this pay increase, despite the notice arriving after the monthly payroll was closed.  We have consistently been to the forefront in our sector in ensuring that pay increases are applied as soon as possible and this does not happen without very dedicated staff.
