“Over the next two years, we will work to further strengthen the agreement and ensure that it is brought into line with other agreements in all areas and that it is considered relevant on major projects. Construction workers must remain vigilant to ensure that employers actually pay the agreed wage rates. Too often, construction employers try to increase their profits by not paying the agreed increases. Ross Murdoch, National Officer at GMB, added: “Given the current climate across the construction industry and the general economic climate, this agreement is both a recognition of a highly skilled workforce and a demonstration of the real commitment to maintaining a valid common national industrial agreement. Parties to the CIJC Working Rule Agreement are in regular contact to monitor the industry`s progress after the emergency, in order to better understand the persistent impact on employers, operations and the sector. In the meantime, all tariffs and certificates provided for in the CIJC agreement of 1 August 2018 continue to apply. As part of the salary agreement, the staff travel subsidy will also be increased based on the percentage increase in wage rates, the duty-free allowance will increase in line with inflation and housing allowances will increase by 7.8% in 2018 to £40 per night. Accommodation assistance will increase further in 2019 in line with inflation. Around 400,000 construction workers, who work under the CIJC construction Industry agreement, will benefit from a two-year wage contract from Monday 25 June 2018. Industry sickness benefits, which are in addition to statutory sickness benefits, will increase by 6.1% to £130 per week. This is paid for 13 weeks, compared to the 10 for which it is currently paid.

The industrial death benefit, which applies when an employee is killed at work or goes to work and goes to work, is increased from £32,000 to £40,000. “As more important construction projects are put in place in the coming years, this agreement offers real hope to preserve the skills the sector desperately needs and attract new apprentices, with the increase in the percentage of training rate further increasing the importance of the latter.” While work is resuming on many construction sites, the overall impact on the construction industry remains variable in different parts of the country. As a result, the CIJC member federations, which represent the workers covered by the CIJC, decided this week to extend the postponement of wage negotiations until September, if another assessment is carried out. This decision was not supported by the unions and we await their formal response. Threaded Commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
