Since the decisive 69% to 31% rejection of the Bylor/NNB Extraordinary Pay & Conditions Offer, your reps and officers have been in talks with the employer and client. We are now in a position to present an improved offer which we recommend for your consideration.
What has been improved?*
(*Subject to this offer being accepted.)
*The payment of £250 which was proposed to be made in October 2022 has now been increased to £600 and will be
brought forward and paid in the next available pay date.
*We have secured an improvement to the Attendance Bonus for both locals and travelling workers – if you leave 2 hours early on the middle Friday (i.e. at 2pm instead of 4pm) this will not jeopardise your Bonus
What was already good about the previous offer?
Within the Civils industry we have never had a Lodge Retainer payment before. Your reps have agreed that if this deal is accepted you will get the same Lodge Retainer as under the ECSA.
4% pay increase across all trades. This is an interim payment between acceptance and December 31st when the RPI increase will come into effect.
These figures are calculated on site working hours 50.5 hours per week.
Increased pay in your pocket now, ahead of an expected 10% pay rise in January (on current estimates). Your reps will be walking the platforms to show you what this means in Pounds and Pence to you. Please approach them to find out.
Extra stage added to Grievances you may raise for bullying against Supervisors so this goes above Bylor for adjudication.
The remainder of the previous offer also still stands (refer to earlier comms from your TU).
When and how do we vote on this?
The ballot will be electronic, sent to your email address, and will open on Monday, closing at 23:59 on Thursday night. We will then have the results on Friday. If this is accepted the extra pay and all of the above can be implemented.
