Re: Pay and Benefits

Dear Ursula

Firstly I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, my name is John O’Donnell and I am the new Industrial Officer Organiser joining the team in the Mandate Cork Office.

I am currently familiarising myself with the files and note that my colleague Ms. Lorraine O’Brien wrote to you on 14th June 2021 and 26th July 2021 in relation to the Mandate pay claim, however to date we await your response.

I would appreciate if you would provide me with an update as to whether or not the increase as outlined in the “Building Momentum, a new public service agreement  2021-2022” has been paid and revert to the undersigned at the earliest opportunity.


Yours sincerely

For Mandate Trade Union
