Interim productivity payment

Article 41

With effect from 1 April 1998, Interim Productivity Payment will be consolidated into basic rates of pay as provided for in the Whitley Council Agreement dated 24 June 1998.

In return for consolidated rates of pay, general workers and their representatives acknowledge a continuing commitment to work flexibly, and to co-operate constructively, with management in introducing improved working practices designed to reduce unit costs by optimising the use of labour, plant, materials and capital equipment.

Note: The agreement reached between the 2 Sides of the Whitley Council in 1984 that there should be no abuse of the Sick Pay Scheme; that normal working hours should be adhered to strictly with particular emphasis on good time keeping; and that overtime working will not be unreasonably refused by employees, continues to apply.
