No, you get the 10.67 + 10.67, and all the hours you work at the job at 13.08.

You don't get the allowance and your 1 hour travelling, thats what the allowance is.

The jib is not there for your benefit and was setup to harmonise wages between companys and to keep wages uniform(read that as low). Call me cynical but the only thing the jib ever did for the common electrician was to weed out the chancers, shame they never stuck to it though.

I agree with Paulh, they kept our wages down, although it seemed to stop employers paying below the rate.
