PFNI says Supreme Court move ‘regrettable’

The Police Federation for Northern Ireland (PFNI) is telling thousands of its members owed holiday pay back payments that they will have to wait longer than they thought because of a fresh legal challenge from the PSNI.

The PSNI’s decision to seek leave to appeal the holiday pay Judgement to the Supreme Court has been described as ‘regrettable and unfortunate’ by the staff association.

In a statement, PFNI Chair, Mark Lindsay, said: “If the Supreme Court grants this application, then it is possible that the issue will take even longer to get resolved. It was going to be a protracted process to return to the Industrial Tribunal for adjudication of individual claims, but this latest legal action could cause even further delay.

“Our officers are owed money that is due because the PSNI failed to factor in overtime worked in holiday pay entitlement.

“We have already instructed our solicitors to mount a robust defence of our position on behalf of the 3,500 officers involved in the case. It is regrettable and unfortunate that the employer has taken this position, but from our perspective, we are determined to exhaust all legal avenues to ensure our men and women are paid what is rightfully due to them.”
