Construction workers operating under the Construction Industry Joint Council (CIJC) agreement will see the second-stage pay increases come into effect from 1 January 2024. The CIJC pay rates were announced earlier this year, with the first stage increases effective from 1 July 2023.

In addition, the taxed travel allowance will increase by 1.5 per cent from 1 January 2024. Industry sick pay (which is paid on top of statutory sick pay) will increase to £156.33 from January 2024.

The rates should be read in conjunction with the Working Rule Agreement and Holiday Entitlement 2023.
