T&G members at Land Rover vote to reject pay offer

Transport and General Workers' Union (TGWU) members working at Land Rover voted in a ballot on Thursday 23 October to reject an offer of a 6.5% pay rise over two years, by 5,055 votes to 1,117.

TGWU officials were due to meet on Friday to consider their next move, but no release had been issued by the morning of 27 October announcing whether any plans for industrial action would be proposed to Land Rover members.

TGWU official David Osborne urged Land Rover to come back to the negotiating table: "The company should reflect very seriously on this overwhelming rejection, and we should urge them to reopen negotiations so that a sensible settlement can be found," he said.

The dispute is understood to centre on alleged disparities in pay and conditions between workers at Land Rover and their counterparts at fellow Ford Premier Automotive Group member Jaguar.
