The following amendments to the Working Rule Agreement have been provided by the Construction Industry Joint Council and will come into force on Monday, June 24, 2019. Although they are voluntary, their use as a guide helps to create a level playing field in the construction industry. These agreements can help avoid labour disputes and simplify the process of negotiating terms between a very large number of different employers and workers. In addition, expenses such as travel and accommodation expenses paid to workers under an RSA are not considered income for tax purposes. The CIJC (CIJC) Working Rule Agreement is the largest agreement of its kind in the construction industry and has more than 500,000 workers. All 500,000 employees are subject to the minimum wage rates set by the agreement and most are covered by the entire agreement, which includes, among other things, travel rates and collective agreements. While work is resuming on many construction sites, the overall impact on the construction industry remains variable in different parts of the country.
As a result, the CIJC member federations, which represent the workers covered by the CIJC, decided this week to extend the postponement of wage negotiations until September, if another assessment is carried out. This decision was not supported by the unions and we await their formal response. Civil Engineering Procedure, 7th Edition, published by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), defines a labour agreement (WRA) as follows: The Working Rule Agreement is concluded between employers` representatives and trade unions in the construction industry and sets the agreed wage rates on the different levels of apprenticeship and craftsmanship as well as leave rights and social benefits. It also covers other topics such as working time and health, safety and well-being. Construction Industry Publications has published the latest Construction Industry Joint Council (CIJC) Working Rule Agreement and the accompanying Labour Agreement Guide. The CIJC Working Rule Agreement is the largest of its kind in the industry. Negotiations take place between employers and trade union representatives (unite and GMB). These books describe all the trades in the industry and contain the latest changes to the CIJC. These include the enactment of payments in 2018, during which the wage packages of around 200,000 UK construction workers will increase.
Given the need to attract high-level newcomers to the sector, the entry fee for apprentices will increase by 7% to £5.50 per hour. The Construction Industry Joint Council (CIJC) Working Rule Agreement, its remuneration and conditions would normally have been reviewed at the end of June 2020. In April 2020, all parties to the agreement agreed to postpone the launch of review discussions, given the covid-19 emergency and the unprecedented impact on employers, operational staff, the industry and across the UK. Parties to the CIJC Working Rule Agreement are in regular contact to monitor the industry`s progress after the emergency, in order to better understand the persistent impact on employers, operations and the sector. In the meantime, all tariffs and certificates provided for in the CIJC agreement of 1 August 2018 continue to apply. The new guide is not part of the Working Rule Agreement itself and it is the provisions of the Working Rule Agreement that must be respected. You will find the full agreement on the working rules in the download section of our members section. All the above elements were agreed in the framework of the 2018 salary and conditional negotiations. . .
