Garda complaints process resumes after end of pay dispute
Gsoc says backlog in handling of disciplinary complaints against gardaí is being cleared after seven-month hiatus
Senior gardaí have resumed their handling of disciplinary complaints about members of the force after a seven-month dispute.
Since last July, Garda superintendents had declined to investigate disciplinary complaints made against Garda members due to a dispute about pay and allowances.
This meant that these investigations had stalled. However, Garda superintendents have started to deal with such complaints again in recent weeks.
Superintendent Mick Comyn, the general secretary of the Association of Garda Superintendents, confirmed to the Business Post that a decision had been made to facilitate ongoing talks at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).
