Dear Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service,

Please can you tell me if you have complied with the above court
ruling relating to additional payments paid to Firefighters e.g.
Day Crewing, Training Allowances etc now being classed as
pensionable pay?

1. If yes, when did you comply with this ruling?

2. If no, why haven't complied with this ruling?

Yours faithfully,

Hello Mr Tait

I had passed your request to our finance department on 8/10/15 to deal with under normal course of business as I had thought it could be dealt with quicker than FOI . I was not aware that they had not replied to you and I can only apologise for this.

I have spoken to them today and I they have advised me that NIFRS do not have any day crewing or training allowances but we do have a flexi duty system and we are treating this as pensionable. Since the flexi duty system has been operational NIFRS have always treated flexi duty pay as pensionable, hence this case has not impacted NIFRS as this was always the way this pay was treated.

I hope this answers your query and if there is anything else I can do please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards
