pounds 150m back pay deal for civil service; INDUSTRY.

A pounds 150million deal was offered to civil servants yesterday to settle a longrunning pay dispute. Up to 13,000 low-paid, mainly female, staff would benefit from the back pay, plus an annual rise in the Civil Service salary bill of between pounds 20million and pounds 25million.

Leaders at union Nipsa are expected to meet today before putting the deal to its members.

Chief John Corey said: "Whether or not these proposals provide a basis for settlement of the equal pay claims will be a matter to be decided by Nipsa members in the grades affected."

A spokesman for the Department of Finance and Personnel confirmed a written offer had been passed to Nipsa.
