The Joint Council had previously decided to increase industrial holidays and, on 30 June 2017, it had decided to move to flexible public holidays. The labour regulatory agreement is concluded between employers` representatives and construction trade unions and sets agreed rates of pay at different levels of apprenticeship and crafts, as well as leave rights and workers` benefits. It also addresses other issues such as the end of working hours, health, safety and well-being. The Joint Council of Construction (CIJC) Labour Rules Agreement is the largest agreement of its kind in the construction industry and includes more than 500,000 workers. All 500,000 workers are subject to the minimum wage rates set out in the agreement and most are covered by the whole agreement, which includes, among other things, travel fares and fares. The Blue Book has been updated with changes that will apply from December 4, 2017. Such agreements can help avoid labour disputes and facilitate the negotiation process between a very large number of different employers and workers. In addition, expenses such as travel and accommodation paid to workers under an EEA are not accounted for as tax revenue. The Joint Council for the Building – Civil Engineering Industry (Northern Ireland) had already announced the wage increase on 18 October 2017. The agreement provides for different rates of compensation for each kilometre between 15 and 75 kilometres, but this table shows only the distance inside and the other 5 km. You can question an allowance paid for a distance of 5 km if it is not located between the upper and lower limits for the 5km band. Civil Engineering Procedure, 7th edition, published by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) defines a work rules agreement (WRA) as follows: the scale applies to round-trip travel as well.
