“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 for employers to effectively pay agreed rates of pay. Too often, employers in the construction sector try to increase their profits by not paying the agreed increases. Under the BATJIC 4 working agreement, seven of the 22 working days of annual leave are related to the Christmas holidays, which must be taken outside the three public holidays. Leave may be taken by mutual agreement between the employer and the worker in other periods. In Scotland, the Christmas holiday period consists of four public holidays and six days of annual leave. The BatJIC 2020/21 rates of pay came into effect on Monday, June 22, 2020. This year`s agreement is a one-year agreement that agreed to a general increase in the rate of pay of 3% and a 1.8% increase in the daily allowance, in line with the value of the January 2020 Consumer Price Index (CPI). Construction Industry Publications has published the joint council`s latest Joint Council (ICJC) and accompanying Labour Rules Guide. The CIJC Working Rule Agreement is the largest of its kind in the industry. Negotiations are taking place between employers and union representatives (Unite and GMB).
These books describe all trades in the industry and contain the latest changes to the ICJC. These include the enactment of wages in 2018, where the wage packages of around 200,000 British construction workers will increase. The agreement of the Joint Council of the Construction Industry (ICJC), its remuneration and conditions would normally have been reviewed at the end of June 2020. In April 2020, all parties agreed to postpone the opening of possible review talks due to the emergency situation of Covid 19 and the unprecedented impact this has had on employers, workers, industry and the United Kingdom as a whole. Parties to the CYOC labour standards agreement remain in regular contact to monitor progress, while the sector makes progress in an emergency to better understand the current impact on employers, workers and industry. In the meantime, all tariffs and certificates are still in effect in accordance with the CIJC agreement of August 1, 2018. All of the above elements were agreed upon during the 2018 salary and conditional negotiations. For questions about the changes, please contact Gerry Lean, Joint Employer Council for the Construction Industry, firstname.lastname@example.org. In February 2020, the trade union side applied for a salary for the Joint Council of the Construction Sector (ICJC), the largest national construction market, which focuses on civil engineering and biblical crafts.
