The other 95 earned between €100,000 and €150,000.

The figures do not include RTÉ’s top earners, which include Ryan Tubridy, Ray Darcy and Joe Duffy to name a few, as they are seen as independent contractors and not staff members.

In April of this year, staff of RTÉ overwhelmingly voted against a proposal from management for pay cuts ranging from 3.5% to 5.35% for staff members earning over €40,000 per year.

RTÉ is seeking to reduce its operating costs by €60 million between 2020 and 2023.
