  3. Hi all I just started work with local authority after 15 yrs contract climbing. I'm try to get more money for our tree crew as we are only earning general operative wages, disgraceful pay for chainsaw use {wouldnt live on them}.I have approached our union rep. we discussed bringing the tree crew into the semi-craftmanship rates. He said i would have a better chance if I could bring forward rates of pay which are earned in the industry that we could bench mark against, is the anywhere i can find this as i dont even think anything like this exists. taking into account im in ireland and rates here vary....100 -130 euro for groundie and anywhere between 150-250 climbing dep. on experiance
