Host informed Unite in a direct message that it was NNB that has instructed them to put the campus rates up!
Unite believe that these rates are unjust and totally disrespectful to the workforce who gave up digs and moved onto the campus's in order to help with the covid 19 pandemic and the containment of it. A minimum of 20% increase is how they are rewarded!
So Unite asks on NNB to put a price freeze on any increase on campus rates in which many workers have gone above and beyond in making sure this project remains productive and safe to the wider community! there refusal to do this will result in workers (being forced) who in turn have already informed UNITE of their intention to leave the campus's and ascend back into Bridgwater and local communities
Those not staying on campus:
Whilst this may not effect you now your support is welcome as any increase of workers into the wider communities may increase future rates!
