Ucatt reps set for pay vote


UNION officials are due to vote on whether to accept a pay deal for craft workers struck last month with local authorities.

Regional representatives from Ucatt will head to London on December 15 to hold a vote on the award, which will see pay packets rise nearly 9 per cent over the next three years.

Ucatt general secretary Alan Ritchie said it was likely the officials would vote to accept the deal, which covers 43,000 employees in local authorities.

Building labourers will see their annual pay rise from £10,983 to £11,961, while craft workers' wages will go up from £12,519 to £13,633-a-year.
