Arising from discussions between PDFORRA and the Department of Defence, facilitated by the WRC, it was accepted that a variance had arisen between the savings required to be made under one of the savings initiatives agreed with PDFORRA in Haddington Road Defence Sector Collective Agreement (HRA) and the effect of the implementation of the payscales for new entrant recruits/privates attached to that agreement.  As a result thereof, it was agreed that the relevant payscale would be adjusted in a manner which would continue to deliver the required savings into the future, as required under HRA.

The above adjusted payscale, agreed by the Department of Defence and PDFORRA under the provisions of the HRA, will be implemented with effect from 1 July 2016.  The above figures will require to be further adjusted to apply the terms of the Lansdowne Road Agreement 1 to them and this is currently being worked through.

Arrangements are being made to calculate and pay any arrears payments due to those members who are covered by the revised arrangements as set out above.
