JLR workers accept pay deal
Jaguar Land Rover workers have accepted a two-year pay deal.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) workers have accepted a two-year pay deal said to be worth up to 9.8 per cent.
Unite said its members at Castle Bromwich and Solihull in the West Midlands, Halewood on Merseyside and the research sites at Gaydon and Whitley, also in the West Midlands, voted by 3-1 in favour.
National officer Roger Maddison said: "This is a very good result for JLR in particular and the car industry in general. We can now move forward to reinforce the renaissance in British car production.
"The deal is nothing less than the workforce deserve as they have contributed greatly to the nearly £3bn profit made by JLR over the last three years."
Unite said the deal will mean a pay rise of 4.5 per cent, plus £500 from November, followed by 3 per cent or RPI inflation from November 2013.
"Africa is abundant with engineering opportunity. We look at some of the projects and the problems."
