Pay rise deal secured for footwear workers!

Following positive talks with representatives from the British Footwear Association, this year’s pay talks have concluded and an increase of 3.9% has been agreed on all rates including day-work contract rates.

This will apply to wages earned from the first working day of January 2022. This agreement also includes a movement of the pay anniversary date to the first Monday of April of every calendar year commencing from 2023.  

There has also been a recommendation to British Footwear Association member companies that the 6th of June is adopted as the date to be taken for the Queens Jubilee where possible.  This additional day will receive the appropriate rate of pay.

We want to say a massive thank you to Community reps who were involved with the talks, their input and representation was both constructive and well thought out, and it is due to their hard work that we have reached such a positive conclusion.
