Employees of Carillion Construction Limited working on and supporting Network Rail projects were today given some better news as their wages were guaranteed through to at least mid-April 2018.
Working behind the scenes, the Official Receiver’s special managers – PwC – and Network Rail have come to an agreement which ensures that PwC can pay employees’ wages for work done on and supporting Network Rail’s projects until after Easter and have also made arrangements to ensure rail employees are paid as normal in January for work done in January.
Carillion Construction employees working on and supporting Network Rail projects are encouraged to turn up for work as normal and continue to deliver their rail work and projects, secure in the knowledge that they will be paid by PwC for the work they do.
In addition, funding has been secured to ensure that any suppliers to Carillion will be paid by PwC in respect of work relating to Network Rail projects since Monday (15/01/18) and going forward.
Network Rail and PwC are also working closely together to evaluate the cost of work done on Network Rail contracts in the period up to liquidation with a view to provide clarity to suppliers as quickly as possible.
Network Rail and PwC continue to work closely on proposals for the future treatment of contracts, staff and suppliers to ensure the continued delivery of these important projects.
