CWU members at Romec have voted to accept a 2.5% pay rise in a deal negotiated by the union after the company initially offered 1.8%

The 12-month deal applies to all Romec’s CWU-grade workers, is fully consolidated and pensionable, flows through to all overtime and allowances and is backdated to April 2014.

CWU deputy general secretary Dave Ward: “The 12-month pay offer Romec workers overwhelmingly voted in favour of is a significant improvement on the company’s initial position. This pay deal has clearly been endorsed and we are grateful to Romec workers for their patience throughout the negotiations.

“The 2.5% increase matches the retail price index at the settlement date and is fully consolidated and pensionable. The agreement also secures firm commitments on a number of issues, which we will be working with the business to implement in the coming months.”
