Troubles a-brewing at the old FAI
There’s more unrest in the FAI as half their workforce consider strike action.
Up to half of the FAI’s 156-strong workforce is considering taking industrial action after rejecting cost-saving measures.
The FAI had been struggling due to the money it has owed for the redevelopment of Lansdowne Road and declining attendances at games, this despite the FAI’s Chief Executive officers insistence in a recent interview with the Sunday Independent journalist Dion Fanning that the organisation will be out of debt by 2020.
Yesterday the members of SIPTU who represent most of the organisation's employees said its members had given proposals to cut wages by 10percent, freeze the pension scheme contributions and implement 7 compulsory redundancies the red card.
SIPTU organiser Denis Hynes told the Irish Independent that if the proposal was accepted, it would mean that an employee on a yearly salary of €60,000 two years ago would see their wages cut to about €35,000.
He also said the issue could result in serious strike action if not resolved.
John Delaney announced recently that he would take a ten percent pay cut to reduce his annual salary from €400,000 to €360,000.
Irish senior football team manager Giovanni Trapattoni’s salary will be left untouched, he is on €1.5million a year but has taken thirty percent pay cut during his time as Irish boss.
