BESNA Deal Finished
BESNA Deal is finished after M&E contractors decided to follow Balfour Beatty’s lead and abandon the reforms.
Balfour Beatty Engineering Services dramatically pulled-out of the BESNA deal last week following pressure from Unite union. The move left the six remaining firms – NG Bailey, Crown House, Gratte Brothers, Spie Matthew Hall, Shepherd Engineering Services and T Clarke unsure about the future of BESNA.
A source close the situation said, “We have signed-up more than 90% of workers to the new terms and conditions which will make them between £40 and £100 a week better off. How do you turn round and take that away from them now? We’ll leave that one to the union to explain.”
