Construction Industry Publications has published the latest Construction Industry Joint Council (CIJC) Working Rule Agreement and accompanying Working Rule Agreement Guide. These books detail each craft within the industry, and incorporate the latest changes from the CIJC.
They also include the 2018 Pay Promulgation, which will see the pay packets of around 200,000 construction workers across the UK rise following agreement between employers and unions.
The Construction Industry Joint Council Working Rule Agreement is the largest of its kind in the industry. The agreement is negotiated between employers and union representatives from Unite and GMB. CIJC Employers are pleased to announce a ground breaking two year pay and conditions settlement has been agreed.
Effective from 25th June basic pay rates will increase by 3.2% with a further 2.9% increase in June 2019.
Additionally Industry Sick Pay (ISP) will increase by 6.1% and the duration of payment extended from 10 to 13 weeks. The nightly lodging allowance will increase by 7.8% to £40.00 per night and later in the year the death in service benefit will increase from £32,500 to £40,000 doubled to £80,000 if death occurs either at work or travelling to or from work.
Mindful of the need to attract high calibre new entrants into the industry the starting pay for apprentices will increase by 7% to £5.50 per hour.
The Working Rule Agreement is available in a book and PDF format, and these along with the accompanying updated guide can be purchased from Construction Industry Publications
