Balfour electricians get holiday pay rise

Electricians employed by construction giant Balfour Beatty have secured improved holiday pay rates.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “This is an excellent result for Unite’s construction members at Balfour Beatty. Unite is now entirely committed to improving the jobs, pay and conditions of its members and this agreement demonstrates that this approach is bearing fruit.” The change in the way that Balfour Beatty will pay holiday pay brings the company into line with other employers that abide by the JIB/SJIB agreements, Unite said.

Unite national officer Jason Poulter said: “This was a very important agreement and has settled a longstanding grievance for electricians employed by Balfour Beatty. Unite will now be working to ensure that other electrical contractors take action and begin paying workers their full holiday pay.”
