The above mentioned rates of pay incorporate a 5.26% increase secured in response to the introduction of the Single Pension Scheme with effect from 1st January 2013.

The associated level of allowances is 5.26% higher than the comparable pre 2013 level of allowances – with the exception of overseas peace support allowance and overseas armed peace support allowance.

PDFORRA has lodged a claim for free rations and accommodation for recruits and apprentices while in training.  This is based on the new recruitment approach and an existing Adjudication recommendation.

Finally, PDFORRA is seeking to address the imbalance between pre and post 1st January 2013 entrants at the upper levels of the pay scale with a view to ending the two tier entry grades.
