MEBSCA employers issued with notice of industrial action

Employers deemed in breach of collective agreement

September 15th:  During a meeting today (Tuesday) between mechanical employers represented by MEBSCA-CIF and the MEBSCA unions Unite and Connect, at which employers refused to commit to paying the 2.7 % pay increase which fell due on September 1st under the MEBSCA collective agreement, unions issued employers with notice of industrial action.

Commenting, Unite Regional Officer Tom Fitzgerald said:

“The refusal by employers to commit to paying the agreed wage increase places them in breach of the MEBSCA collective agreement.  Unions therefore had no choice but to issue employers with notice of industrial action.

“It is now up to the employers to resolve this dispute by paying their workers the agreed pay increases which fell due on September 1st.  Otherwise, they will face an autumn of determined industrial action”, Mr Fitzgerald concluded.
