Given the need to attract high-level newcomers to the industry, the entry-level salary of apprentices will increase by 7% to £5.50 per hour. Construction Industry Publications has published the latest agreement on the working rules of the Joint Council of the Construction Industry (CIJC) and the accompanying guide to the agreement on working rules. The ICJC`s agreement on working rules is the largest of its kind in the industry. Negotiations take place between employers and trade union representatives (from Unite and GMB). These books describe all the trades in the industry and include the latest changes to the CIJC. This includes the 2018 wage enactment, in which the wages of around 200,000 British construction workers will rise. The Joint Construction Industry Council (JC) Labour Rules Agreement is the largest such agreement in the construction industry, covering more than 500,000 workers. The 500,000 workers are subject to the minimum wage rates set out in the agreement, and most fall under the entire agreement, which includes, among other things, travel expenses and fares. Civil Engineering Procedure, 7th Edition, published by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), defines a Labor Rules Agreement (WRA) as: Such agreements can help avoid labor disputes and simplify the process of negotiating terms between a very large number of different employers and employees. In addition, expenses such as travel and accommodation expenses paid to employees under a WRA are not considered income for tax purposes. The agreement on the working rules is available in book and PDF format along with an updated buying guide from Construction Industry Publications.
CIJC employers will offer an innovative two-year wage and working conditions plan. Effective June 25, base wage rates will increase by an additional 3.2% and 2.9% in June 2019. In addition, the Industrial Sickness Benefit (ISM) will be increased by 6.1%, with the payment period increasing from 10 to 13 weeks. The accommodation allowance will also increase by 7.8% to £40 per night. And later in the year, the service death benefit will increase from £32,500 to £40,000, which will double to £80,000 if the death occurs at work or on the way to work. The WRA provides a guide on acceptable conditions for employers and employees. .
