24-hour Land Rover strike on 26 January

Workers represented by the Amicus trade union at Land Rover will be staging a 24-hour strike on 26th January as part of their continuing action to reject the company's pay offer.

The workforce at the Solihull and Gaydon plants voted in December in support of strike action following their rejection of Land Rover's offer of 6.5% staged over two years. Amicus, TGWU and GMB members at Land Rover say the 6.5% offer will not give them parity with colleagues at Jaguar and voted to reject it by 82% in a ballot in October 2003.

Shop stewards from the joint trade union committee met on 12 January and voted to step up action that has seen an overtime ban and withdrawal from the operating time flexibility agreement since 5 January.

- Amicus, which represents something over 30% of Nissan's 4,800 workforce at Sunderland, is seeking an urgent meeting with Nissan management over Carlos Ghosn's threat to build the firm's Almera replacement outside the UK unless Britain joins the euro.
