Under the current public service pay agreement, Building Momentum 2021-2022, a sectoral bargaining fund has been allocated to deal with outstanding adjudications, commitments, recommendations, awards and claims. The bargaining fund equates to 1% of basic pensionable pay for each bargaining unit set up under the Agreement.

In the Health sector, the process of negotiation under Sectoral Bargaining is still ongoing for most cohorts of staff. Once negotiations have concluded and the claims to be addressed or partially addressed under Sectoral Bargaining have been agreed with the relevant unions, any increases in pay or allowances to specific cohorts of staff whose outstanding claims are being addressed under the Sectoral Bargaining process, will be paid retrospectively from 1 February 2022.
