The Finance Minister has confirmed that public sector workers will get a planned pay rise in October.

Unions have been campaigning for the increase to go ahead despite the predicted 30 billion euro hole in the state's finances due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Under the final stage of the pay deal around 330,000 public sector workers, including nurses, gardaĆ­ and teachers, along with council staff, are due to get the 2 percent hike in pay.

There is a clause in the pay restoration deal stating the agreement could be revised if there were to be "adverse" adjustments to "economic circumstances".

But Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe confirmed this morning that the pay restoration would go ahead and said that some of these workers have been on the frontline during the Covid-19 crisis.
