This appeal case relates to the awarding of pension increases by the company concerned. A request from the Trustees of the scheme seeking a pension increase is being considered at the moment by my Department. The outcome of this request may feed into the deliberations on the determination in this case. Notwithstanding the outcome of the pension increase request I can confirm that the Appeals Officer has now contacted the complainant directly with a view to making a determination as soon as possible.
