Information Circular No 22/2018: Adjudication Findings – Claim for Loss of Earnings – EOD Personnel Gormanston

By Industrial Relations Officer

PDFORRA have been contacted by Conciliation and Arbitration Branch, Department of Defence who have advised that it is in the process of finalising the payment for compensation for loss of earnings to our members who undertook EOD duties within Gormanston.

In this regard, the Department has advised that it will require by location, the names and service numbers of the PDFORRA members whom the Association are making representations to have paid.

Once this information is provided the Department has confirmed that it will make immediate arrangements for Pay Administration Section in Galway to issue instructions to PSSC to pay the award to the individuals concerned.

PDFORRA requests that District Committees contact EOD members who may be entitled to compensation under this claim and revert with a consolidated list to PDFORRA HQ as soon as practicable.

A window of three (3) months has been left open to personnel who may wish to claim compensation for this loss of earnings through PDFORRA. Members wishing to claim should contact the local District Committee in Athlone, Cathal Brugha or Ordnance Group in the DFTC within the aforementioned timeframe.
