The Joint Council had previously decided to increase industrial holidays and, on 30 June 2017, it had decided to move to flexible public holidays. CIJC Employers will offer a revolutionary two-year compensation and packaging system. Basic rates of pay will increase by 3.2% from 25 June and by 2.9% in June 2019. In addition, industry sickness benefits (ISPs) will increase by 6.1%, with the duration of payment increasing from 10 to 13 weeks. The overnight allowance is also increased by 7.8% to USD 40 per night. And later in the year, the service death benefit will increase from $32,500 to $40,000, doubling to $80,000 if death occurs either at work or on a trip to work or work. Among the pay slips That Unite has seen, employees only receive their standard overtime pay from Monday to Friday, instead of the time and half indicated in the CIJC agreement. For a Saturday, workers receive $3.50 per hour overtime, while the CIJC agreement stipulates that workers should receive one and a half hours for the first four hours and then double time. The initial enactment was published on May 24, 2019. However, fares and travel scales had been miscalculated and this enactment replaces them with the right numbers.
Activists who have already been paid under the old standards should not be accommodated, but the new correct standards contained in this debate should be applied as soon as possible. With regard to overtime, workers work a standard 39-hour work week (Monday to Friday) under the CIJC agreement, all overtime workers receive an overtime bonus. It appears that the project`s standard working time is 10 hours per day and an additional 10 hours on a Saturday. All contracts for the multi-billion euro project are expected to correspond to a “framework agreement” signed in April 2016 between HS2 and the TUC. The framework agreement aims to ensure good working relations between the unions working in the construction and operation of HS2 and the companies that carry out the work. From April 2020, there will be a new reference period law for calculating leave pay if a worker has variable wages or hours. The minimum employer contribution, under the automatic pension registration rules, is 3% of pension pay between $6,032 and $46,350. In accordance with 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.
