Dear GMB @Tayside Contracts Members
We wanted to update you to let you know what’s happened since you rejected the proposed changes to terms and conditions.
There has not been any meetings with Tayside Contracts since that date, however we asked that the money that was in the pot was distributed amongst grades 1- 3. Tayside Contracts have now advised what they intend to do from the 1st October 2016.
This will be as follows:
Grade 1 – £8.33
Grade 2 – £8.44
Grade 3 – £8.69
Grade 4 – the lowest tier at Grade 4 being removed to show £8.97
It is likely that the way we negotiate your terms and conditions will change in future and will include your stewards. We are absolutely clear that members from the construction division and facilities division will be properly represented.
We have asked whether after the changes in pay from the 1st October if there is any money left in the pot, and why this is only being implemented from the 1st October as we believe that the increases in pay should have been from April, or at the latest July.
We will keep you updated with any developments.
