Land Rover staff walk out over pay

Land
Rover workers are striking for a second time today in a dispute over pay.

Unions
representing staff are seeking parity with workers at Jaguar, which is owned by
the same parent company Ford. But Land Rover has said that its offer of 6.5 per
cent over two years is final.

The
one-day walkout is likely to cost Land Rover about £2m in lost production from
its Solihull plant.

Today’s
strike follows a similar walkout two weeks ago and follows the news last week
that Ford plans to close a factory in Essex, with the loss of 150 jobs.
