Land Rover's second one-day strike could cost 1,000-unit output

Land Rover's Solihull plant has been hit by a second 24-hour stoppage today, 9 February, involving T&G, Amicus and GMB members.

It could cost production of about 1,000 Land Rover and Range Rover models worth at least £20m, reports the Financial Times, adding that Land Rover believes it can make up the production in future.

Unions have described worker-management relations at Solihull as a complete breakdown of trust, to which they say the management's decision to move Freelander production to Halewood, Ford's most advanced plant in the world in terms of production systems, has contributed, as well as its unwillingness to add to the current 6.5% pay offer.
