United Kingdom -10%-20% pay raise for craft workers in Sheffield -October 05, 2012

GMB, Unite and UCCATT have closed a wage agreement for craft workers employed by Amey , a company contracted to maintain roads and street lighting in Sheffield. The wage conflict arose in 2010, when the craft workers were still employed by the Sheffield municipality and the craft workers were denied a pay rise offered to other labourers employed by the municipality. One month after the workers were transferred from the municipality to Amey, the conflict was resolved. The pay deal offers a minimum raise of 10%, up to 20% for the lowest paid workers.
