Following further discussions with Thales, we have received the following offer
“Paul, further to the RMT concerns raised on the 9th April about the Thales position on the non-payment of shift pay allowances during the period of Furlough, I am pleased to say that Thales has reviewed this position and can for the period of this current Furlough until the 31st May 2020, agree for the collective community (Grades LR 2-7) in Job Family 07 & 10 to receive shift pay allowance, where entitled, at the full rate funded by Thales whilst they are Furloughed.
This offer is final and represents a significant commitment by Thales to our valued staff, over and above what is the Government guidelines and the previously published Thales offer during Furlough. This offer is conditional on the RMT accepting the overall Thales Furlough proposals for the current Furlough period up to the 31st May 2020.”
We are still seeking updates on the use of contract labour and the implementation of the pay back clause and will update you all as soon as we can
