Footwear workers to get sick pay & wage hike

10
Jan '06
Community trade union has been successful in negotiating with the British Footwear Association for a pay hike and the first sick pay scheme for thousands of their workers.

Rise in pay will be 2.5 percent and scheme for the sick will be introduced later, this year.

The union represents employees who work in textile, apparel, footwear manufacturing, retail and logistics industries in UK.

The British Footwear Association is the representative body of UK suppliers of footwear.

BFA benefits its members through a range of services including marketing, networking and advice on issues ranging from exporting products to government legislation.

BFA offer representation at key overseas fairs and access to UK and EU grants for overseas shows.
