West Midlands Land Rover dispute

Submitted by Anon on 5 February, 2004 - 4:21

Trade union Amicus has written to Land Rover, asking them to resume talks to resolve the pay dispute at the Solihull and Gaydon plants in the West Midlands.
TGWU and Amicus members at Land Rover are due to hold another 24-hour stoppage on Monday 9 February after holding a successful strike on Monday 26 January.

The workers are angry that the company's six-and-a-half percent pay offer will not give them parity with colleagues in Ford-owned Jaguar. They voted overwhelmingly to reject the company offer by 82% in a ballot in October.

There has already been the introduction of an overtime ban in December and withdrawal from an operating time flexibility agreement.

The dispute is not just about pay, but also against unions being sidelined as the company prepares radical changes in work practices.
