Peugeot workers walk out in pay dispute

Thousands
of workers at Peugeot in Coventry are set to walk out today over pay.

The
24-hour walkout will hit three plants – the main factory in Ryton, near
Coventry – and two smaller ones nearby.

The
walkout, mainly by members of the Transport and General Workers Union, will
halt production of 1,200 Peugeot 206 models.

The
company had offered a 7.3 per cent pay rise over two years.
