Written answers (Question to Health)

A Workplace Relations Commission agreement was reached in October 2018 in relation to pay restoration for section 39 organisations. This agreement provided for pay restoration in relation to 50 ‘pilot organisations’ in the first instance. Pay restoration for these bodies commenced in April 2019 with further payments due in 2020 and 2021 as appropriate.

I can confirm that the Kerry Parents & Friends Association is one of the section 39 organisations that is included in the pilot group of 50 bodies whose pay restoration is being advanced as outlined above.
