Private Sector

Private Sector


A large proportion of UCATT members work in the private sector.

Many but not all private sector construction workers will operate under a voluntary collective agreement. These agreements cover levels of pay as well as conditions (including hours, holidays, overtime rates, etc.)

By far the largest of these agreements is the Construction Industry Joint Council (CIJC) Working Rule Agreement. Between 400,000 – 500,000 construction workers are covered by this agreement to some degree.

This section has details of the major agreements we negotiate on in the private sector.
