UCATT has welcomed today’s decision at the Employment Appeals Tribunal that overtime should be included in calculating workers’ holiday pay.

General secretary Steve Murphy said: “Construction workers are often reliant on overtime to make ends meet. Workers should not be penalised by having their pay cut when taking holidays.”

UCATT will now be working to ensure that construction employers fully comply with the tribunal’s decision.

Mr Murphy warned: “UCATT will be pursuing all construction employers to ensure that they fully comply with today’s decision and do not try to short change our members.”

If UCATT members believe that they are being underpaid for their holidays they should contact their UCATT Regional Office as soon as possible.
