Around 1,000 Bank of Ireland staff here are seeking wage hikes and performance pay rises.
According to reports, a two-year pay deal between the lender and staff will run out at the end of the year.
Talks between Bank of Ireland and the Irish Bank Officials Association (IBOA) have taken place, aimed at attempting to set out a new agreement, according to the Sunday Business Post.
That will affect some 10,000 staff across Ireland, including around 1,000 in Northern Ireland.
Staff at the bank are seeking a low single digit pay rise, in order to reflect the bank's performance over the last year. The bank did not wish to comment.
