Honda staff offered improved voluntary redundancy package

Hundreds of workers will be completing their final shifts at Honda over the next three months, according to trade union Unite.

In total, 360 associates will leave at the end of January, February and March, after the company offered workers an improved voluntary redundancy package – the third version of the Associate Release Programme (ARP), the Swindon Advertiser reports.

The union said the latest deal rose the equivalent of eight weeks’ pay (£3,300), on top of the previous deal, giving the average 45-year-old worker with 11-years’ service £18,703.84.

The negotiations come after two rounds of previous talks with Unite’s local officers failed to achieve a resolution.
