According to the UK`s second-largest union Unite, the rules on sickness benefits in the construction industry should be changed to combat the spread of coronavirus. In addition, industry sickness benefits (ISPs) will increase by 6.1%, with the duration of payment increasing from 10 to 13 weeks. Overnight assistance is also increased by 7.8% to $40 per night. And later in the year, the service`s money will increase from $32,500 to $40,000 and double to $80,000 if death occurs either at work, at work, or on a trip to work or work. Currently, the national minimum wage for people aged 21 to 24 is $7.70 per hour and the national minimum wage for those aged 25 and over is currently $8.21 per hour. These will be increased from 1 April 2020. There is an urgent need to review the CIJC agreement for the modern workplace – and unions want to work constructively with employers to achieve this goal. The RAD will consult with its members with a firm recommendation to be adopted. Moreover, the ACCORD, through the CIJC labour rule, is far from being the agreement of choice for the entire construction industry, well below the terms of other construction contracts such as naeci and JIB. The three unions warned employers that the agreement would have to be reviewed in depth to bring it into the 21st century, that it would eat on the vine and that it would be useful in a future innovative construction industry. As of Monday, June 24, 2019, basic wages and allowances are as follows: after lengthy negotiations, the construction unions (GMB, UCATT and Unite) have secured an improved two-year contract for workers covered by the Agreement of the Constri Industry Jointction Council (CIJC). The union said changes to sickness benefits in the industry would protect hundreds of thousands of construction workers, including those working on large-scale projects such as Crossrail, Hinkley Point and HS2.
Industry sickness compensation, which in addition to SSP, 135 USD per week. Last week, the government relaxed the rules on statutory sickness benefits so that they are paid immediately when a worker is on sick leave, not the fourth day, which is currently the case, so that workers can isolate themselves if they have symptoms of coronavirus. The agreement of the Joint Council of the Construction Industry (ICJC), its remuneration and conditions would normally have been reviewed at the end of June 2020. In April 2020, all parties agreed to postpone the opening of possible review talks due to the emergency situation of Covid 19 and the unprecedented impact this has had on employers, workers, industry and the United Kingdom as a whole. Parties to the CYOC labour standards agreement remain in regular contact to monitor progress, while the sector makes progress in an emergency to better understand the current impact on employers, workers and industry. In the meantime, all tariffs and certificates are still in effect in accordance with the CIJC agreement of August 1, 2018.
