Information Circular No 5/2017: 2013 Private Pay & Haddington Road Agreement – Clarifications

By Industrial Relations Officer

Discussions held on Friday, 17th February 2017 between PDFORRA, Defence and D PER, which were facilitated by the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC), have concluded with agreement.

The WRC noted that the parties have agreed the parameters within which they will conclude their discussions on pay and these concluding discussions will be held in tandem with those taking place to negotiate a successor agreement to the Lansdowne Rd Agreement (LRA) and around the Public Service Pay Commission (PSPC).  The matters discussed dealt with interpretation and technical issues on the savings to be achieved under the Haddington Rd Agreement (HRA) rather than any matters of principle.

The agreement allows PDFORRA to formally consider agreeing the LRA.  Up to this point PDFORRA has not repudiated the LRA and has fully complied with all its commitments in respect of it.

In the coming weeks, PDFORRA’s National Executive intends to move quickly to consult the membership on agreeing to the LRA and ensuring the early application of its terms to the membership.
