I am a pensioner with Ervia which is the National Gas Company in Ireland. I retired from the company in 2005. An agreement was negotiated between the Company and the Trades Unions in 2000. Within that agreement a set of Policy Booklets were issued to employees
which set out various Policies 13 in total covering areas ranging from Health Safety and Welfare, Employee Assistance, Retirement Planning etc.
The points i am raising are in relation to Retirement Planning and the reference to support for Retired Employees in relation to Post Retirement counselling, support during illness and support for a Retirement Association for Pensioners. The company are refusing to implement these Policies as they relate to Pensioners and have not responded to repeated requests from the Pensioners Association to implement these these agreed Policies. I contend that the company are in breach of this agreement. I would welcome your views. Thank you
Michael A. Phelan.
