Civil Engineering Sector Agreement

The agreement ensures that the project, despite its remoteness from major metropolises, can attract the best people. Our divisions are active in all types of civil engineering environments, including roads and bridges, airports, nuclear facilities, supply companies, subways and subways. We practice the higher form of employment conditions of the CIJC WRA called CESA – The Civil Engineering Agreement. The ESA agreement ensures that: the top pay measures for employees, including the new wage offer that will apply to more than 1,000 construction workers, will lead Hinkley Point employees to obtain a level of pay 36% higher than the minimum wage agreed by the construction industry and the joint council, which constitutes the national agreement for the civil engineering sector. , and an increase in gross maximum remuneration of about 2.9% over previous agreements. The wage increase will include a portion of the previous bonuses in the base salary of employees. This means that leave pay, overtime and pension contributions will also increase. The BCCEI is a sectoral bargaining council created within the meaning of the 1995 Labour Relations Act (LRA) and which is responsible for monitoring the management of resources and social benefits, compliance, enforcement and exemption from the various collective agreements concluded under the BCCEI. The Construction and Civil Engineering Negotiation Council (BCCEI) said the sector has reached a three-year reconciliation agreement on wages and terms of employment. On Monday, June 18, 2018, the Construction Negotiation Council (BCCEI) announced that all parties in the civil engineering sector have signed a three-year agreement on wages and working conditions.

The plan will come into effect before the end of the year, after the proclamation of the Minister of Labour. Click here to view the agreement. Phil Whitehurst, National Officer at GMB, added: “LA S.A.R.L. members voted very positively and responsibly in favour of adopting EDF`s final offer. The employer should have taken charge before January 2017, but chose to take them by the razor. This could have resulted in a trade dispute that would have had disastrous consequences for this prestigious project. Hopefully, this will result in an open and transparent relationship in the construction phase of [Hinkley Point]. A good craftsman who works 48 hours a week would earn $45,000 a year before bonuses and allowances are awarded under the new wage agreement. Peter Hughes, Unite`s regional secretary, said: “This is a pioneering agreement that will now serve as a benchmark for the pay rates of flagship projects across the UK. The agreed rates of pay at Hinkley Point will provide a significant boost to the local economy and, with the project`s ambitious learning program, will generate much-needed skills increases and investments in the Southwest region.
