    Default Public Service redundancies at last

    The cabinet has agreed a €440 million redundancy package for the public service, based on 4,000 redundancies.

    It seems this deal will be cost neutral to Ireland inc within 3 years.

    Should the number of redundancies being offered be increased since we will be in the black after three years?

    ...........How is it costing €110,000 per redundant employee? These numbers seem ridiculous.

    Public sector redundancy plan to cost

    It appears the deal is for a maximum of two year's salary as a lump sum - so I suppose they are working on an an average salary of €55,000

    So the government plan to reduce numbers in the ps to 282,500 by the end of 2014, big bloody deal, there should be at least 20,000 redundancies this year and a similar number in 2014.

    I have no gripe against public sector employees. This is a voluntary scheme so no-one is "losing their jobs" as you suggest.

    How in Gods name can a country that is broke afford to pay off an average of €110,000 per employee it's absolutely ridiculous.

    Wonder is the civil servant that came up with this package planning on taking advantage of it

    Please don't be logical in Paddyland, in Paddyland the attitude is "shure it will be grand".

    That's insane. Utterly insane. If an average salary is €55k and the employee has been there 10 years, the statutory redundancy is €22k. So in that scenario the person's getting 5 times the statutory requirements. It's crazy. It's no way to run a business.
