RTÉ staff earning over €40,000 may face pay cuts under proposals being considered at talks to save €60m.

It is understood that the outline of a 12 month deal that includes tiered wage reductions is being negotiated by management and the Group of Unions at the station.

Sources said the proposals that have not been signed off aim to protect the lower paid. Unions are insisting on an agreement that would mean pay would be restored at a later date.
