Long-term deal at National Grid


Public services union UNISON reports that the National Grid energy company has agreed a new four-year collective agreement. There is a 3.3% pay increase backdated to July 2013 and then a further four years of pay increasing by the rate of inflation. There are also changes to the pay structure and improvements to pension arrangements. The company will also strengthen its commitment to directly-employed labour. UNISON sees this as a significant improvement on the company's original offer and achieved on the basis of a continuing strong trade union presence in the company.
