Our pay will now be held not less than 10 days 'in hand', assuming an employer is allowed to leave the payment of wages until the last day of the month worked. In fact, compared with existing arrangement, it is two weeks 'in hand'.
None of the employees want this and it appears to ride rough-shod over our TUPE'd terms and conditions, and the principle all changes have to be mutually agreed.
Thanks for your reply!
They are claiming this to be part of a company-wide change.
This is just one grievance among several that are emerging with this new employer. We are low-paid workers with few bargaining chips.
I have enough to explain to my colleagues, our situation.
