'New public sector pay report not an ATM for public servants' - Donohoe
Minister says new deal must be "affordable and sustainable"

Donohoe made the remarks after the Public Sector Pay Commission found that there was a case for a new pay deal.
However, it also said pensions for public sector workers hired before 2013 were 12 to 18 per cent more valuable than private sector pensions.
