Multiplex unveils Wembley bonus scheme

Australian contractor Multiplex which is building the £352 million Wembley National Stadium has outlined a bonus scheme to step up work and finish the project in early 2006.
Multiplex and trade unions Amicus and the GMB have agreed the financial scheme, the details of which are yet to be released.

Last week, Multiplex revealed that its losses on the job have spiralled to £45 million and the expected completion date is March 2006, two months later than it originally planned.

The main reason for the delay is problems with the steel work after a change in steel contractor last year.

Wembley project director Ashley Muldoon, said 'This reaffirms the commitment of the Wembley project management team and the workers to ensure the early completion of the new National stadium.'

Amicus regional official Frank Westerman said 'Workers on Wembley are proud to be building the new stadium. This agreement further demonstrates the commitment of both management and workers to get the job done in time for the FA Cup final in 2006.'
