Ryton workers settle with Peugeot

Amicus and TGWU union members at Peugeot's Ryton plant near Coventry voted to accept a revised pay offer from the carmaker on Friday 14 March.

Last weekend's walk-out from the 206 production line was called off. The ballot result was 1,678 votes in favour to 887 votes against – a majority of two to one.

Duncan Simpson, Amicus National Secretary said, "Whilst the final settlement falls below the original aspiration of our members, it's good that the dispute is over. We now need to put these acrimonious discussions behind us and concentrate on working with Peugeot to secure long term prosperity and employment for both the company and our members."

No announcement was made concerning the revision agreed to Peugeot's original two-year pay offer, which offered 7.3% more pay but also required staff to increase their pension contributions by 1%.
