Hudson Contract recently faced the latest in a long line of claims from UCATT members in search of holiday pay and – as always – the case was dismissed.
The facts of the matter, however, are worth reporting:
However what is disappointing is that this case should never have been raised in the first place, the claimant was engaged through Hudson Contract, which UCATT was fully aware of, yet they still encouraged him to pursue the claim. And in the end it is the claimant that has been ordered to pay £20 a week for the foreseeable future, not UCATT or their representative. No doubt the UCATT rep will have an interesting time when he next visits the area on a recruitment drive.
