Unacceptable Pay Offer Could Lead To Balfour Beatty Strike

From RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Cash

rates of pay & Conditions of service 2014 – Balfour Beatty (Ruislip) (LUL/0001/BBR)

Branches are advised that following talks with the company for Improved Rates of Pay and Conditions for 2014, the company offered an increase of 2.6% which is unacceptable to our representatives.

Therefore this matter has been considered by the General Grades Committee, who has taken the decision to enter into dispute with the company, and prepare a ballot matrix of our members in preparation of holding a strike ballot on this issue. I am currently acting in accordance with this decision and will update branches on further developments.
