ATG resolves dispute with BECTU
Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) successfully completed ACAS negotiations with BECTU yesterday, resulting in a resolution on all disputed issues including the move to monthly pay.
By the end of discussions on Monday, most areas of dispute had been resolved and whilst no resolution could be achieved, both sides resumed talks on Thursday and resolved the final area of outstanding dispute.
ATG was instrumental in the re-establishment of talks after BECTU baffled management by walking away from positive negotiations earlier this week.
An ATG spokesperson said, "We're delighted with the outcome and strongly believe that the new agreement represents a good deal for our staff. We were surprised that the deal couldn’t be completed on Monday given what was finally agreed yesterday. We are particularly pleased that BECTU have recognised the new terms and conditions that have been offered to our Front of House staff."
