A complete breakdown of the 28 WRC complaints received by my Department, by origin per service in the Permanent Defence Force (PDF) is as follows:

 Type of Complaint


Naval Service

Air Corps


 Won - not upheld*





 Lost - upheld





 Settled or Withdrawn**










As per correspondence dated to your office on 28th May 2021: 

* The correct number of Complaints Won (not upheld) should have read 6 in PQ 26471

** The correct figure for Complaints Settled or Withdrawn should have read 12 in PQ 26471 

The category titled "Other" in the table above refers to complaints made to the Workplace Relations Commission by non-PDF members, including members of the Reserve Defence Force and the general public regarding issues concerning the Defence Forces.
