PSA to file fresh application against NIB following filing error

The Public Services Association (PSA) will have to re-file an industrial relations offence against the National Insurance Board (NIB).

This follows an error with the paperwork that caused the matter to be dismissed on Tuesday, when it was called in the Industrial court.

PSA president Watson Duke filed the matter last week against NIB, over its failure to honour the terms of a collective agreement signed late last year.

However, Duke revealed on Tuesday that the initial application was dismissed by the court as it was filed under the wrong section of the Industrial Relations Act.

He said a new application will be filed at the Industrial Court on Wednesday (today).

The PSA wants the NIB to abide by the terms of the agreement signed on October 26, last year, for the period 2014-2016. The agreement gave workers a total salary increase of nine per cent.

It also required the NIB to make retroactive payments to workers, increases in paternity leave, car and repair loans, travel allowances and a Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) increase.
