PDForra in legal move over inaction on pay advice | Irish Examiner

The organisation representing around 6,000 members of the Defence Forces is to take legal action against the Department of Defence after it refused to implement an adjudicator’s recommendation to pay around €5m to hard-pressed personnel.

In 2010, PDForra requested adjudication on a number of claims which had been the subject of reports recording disagreement at the Conciliation Council.

The adjudications involved, amongst other things, claims for increased ‘technician pay’ for chefs, increases to the elite Army Ranger Wing (ARW) allowance and the introduction of free rations for recruits and apprentices.

The adjudicator made a finding the ARW allowance should be increased from €134 to €200 weekly and backdated to June 2006.
