Cummins workers to get $2,785 cost-of-living payment – UK union Unite

Britain’s Unite trade union has negotiated a 2,300 pounds ($2,785.30) cost-of-living payment that will cover 2,730 workers at U.S. truck engine maker Cummins , the union said on Thursday.

“The payment was agreed after Unite reps at the company raised the severe problems that workers were having with making ends meet as a result of rampant inflation,” Unite said in a statement.
