In a joint statement, Prospect and Intergen said: “Once the current coronavirus crisis is over and we can hopefully revert to some sense of normality, we shall return to discussions over a long-term reward strategy for employees.
“InterGen and Prospect are grateful for your professionalism and commitment during the current exceptional events: we are both working to ensure that you remain safe whilst running part of the UK’s critical national infrastructure.”
Prospect negotiator Mike Macdonald said: “InterGen’s recognition of our members’ contribution to the company and UK infrastructure is welcome.
“This pandemic has really brought home to people the fact that we can achieve so much more by working together.”
