Donohoe will now take the proposals to Cabinet, while unions will ballot their members on the terms.

Under the draft deal, public servants would receive pay rises ranging from 6.2 per cent to 7.4 per cent over the three years.

According to the department, by the end of the deal, pay cuts imposed during the financial crisis will have been restored to 90 per cent of public servants.
