The Employment Relations Authority decision on this matter was reported in NTM No. 1 – 20 January 2011.
That determination had no direct relevance to members other than those named in that particular case.
The Union has sought a Review of the Authority’s decision – principally on the basis that the Fire Service still refuses to provide a breakdown of the back‐payment made – and therefore it is not possible to determine whether the back‐payment was correct.
This Review is to be heard in the Employment Court on 4 April 2011.
Until then therefore, members are advised to take no further action.
