(d)Where in the course of the year there is a permanent change to the terms and conditions of a regular firefighter’s employment which affects his pensionable pay during the year such that the firefighter falls into a different pensionable pay band to that applied at the beginning of the year, the contribution rate shall be adjusted from the date that the pensionable pay is changed, as notified to the firefighter by the Board, to that of the applicable new band.
