The winter of deep discontent: PTSB staff vote overwhelmingly in favor of industrial action


Employees at Permanent TSB affiliated with Unite have voted in favor of industrial action.

The union represents about 1,000 employees at the institution. Its members had previously rejected a 2.2% pay rise and a 4% lump sum payment.

Bank sources released a statement saying
“The ballot was undertaken to seek support for what the Trade Union describes as “limited” industrial action in a dispute concerning pay modernisation proposals amongst clerical and supervisory staff at the bank.”

“The bank will consider the matter fully when it is formally advised of the outcome of the ballot.”
