Earlier this year, employers’ representatives on the Construction Industry Joint Council (CIJC) met to discuss pay negotiations for 2020/2021.
There, the representatives agreed not to engage in any pay negotiations for 2020/21.
This decision was due to the commercial impact of COVID-19 on the sector. Additionally, it took into account the economic uncertainty the pandemic has created for employers.
As a result of this decision, 2019/20 rates remain current, as we previously advised. Now, employers’ representatives have completed their discussions with the trade unions and noted the union’s view on the position.
As always, we will continue to provide further updates on the pay position where necessary.
