FAI Chief Executive John Delaney has told the association’s staff that they have until Friday to sign up to pay cuts or face job losses, according to the Irish Independent today.
Delaney issued the letter to staff asking that they take a 10% cut in salaries and a reduced pension or jobs would be lost.
Delaney himself is on €400,000 a year, ten times the average wage of most association coaches or administration workers and has offered to take the same percentage pay cut as workers.
Talks have been ongoing between management and workers since the FAI proposed pay cuts to offset losses incurred by the redevelopment of Landsdowne Road and a drop in ticket sales.
The Chief Executive has come under fire in recent months due to drunken antics at Euro 2012 and the size of his salary, which the Irish Independent reports as being more than the heads of the championship’s winners and runners-up Spain and Italy combined.
