By Industrial Relations Officer

During the recent course of District/Regional Briefings, PDFORRA was requested by various members to clarify the cumulative financial effect of the application of the Public Service Pay Commission (PSPC) Recommendations, if accepted, and the ongoing Public Sector Stability Agreement (PSSA) restorations.

As the measures impact personnel differently according to rank, point on scale, entitlement to allowances and year of enlistment PDFORRA has compiled the following chart for ease of reference:
