Northern Ireland construction workers recover lost pay in long-running wage dispute

Seven construction workers in Northern Ireland have successfully secured compensation for a historic wage grievance worth up to £12,000 each following an Industrial Tribunal.

The men – all members of construction workers’ union UCATT – had raised concerns separately on numerous occasions that their wages were not being paid correctly but employers, Down District Council, had repeatedly dismissed they had a legitimate claim. The lead claimant for the case contacted UCATT, who instructed Thompsons NI to act on the workers’ behalf. Thompsons Solicitors NI secured £12,000 for each worker.
