You will be aware, the CWU has secured pensionable increases for staff and pensioners of eir.
In response to our further representations for payment of the agreed increases, the Trustees of the eircom Superannuation Fund and the eircom No. 2 Fund have informed us that they have received notice that the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications together with the concurrence of the Minister for Finance, has approved a 3% pension increase effective from 1st July 2022. The process of calculating pension increases and the arrears back to 1st July 2022 has commenced and the Trustees will communicate when completed.
Indications are that payment of the increase and arrears will be included in the pension payroll, May 2023.
Also, please see attached a letter to the ICTU General Secretary, Owen Reidy, requesting that the ICTU make representations to government, seeking Ministers and the relevant Departments streamline the lengthy approval process for the benefit of our pensioner members.
