Rover workers’ payout boosted

Thousands of former workers at MG Rover are to share a £14m payout after the Transport and General Union (T&G) won an employment tribunal over redundancy pay.

Workers at the collapsed car manufacturer had been waiting for eight weeks worth of pay in lieu of notice, which they were legally entitled to.

The T&G launched the employment tribunal case on behalf of about 5,000 workers.

“This proves that workers must become priority creditors, and administrators should consult with unions before laying anyone off,” said union official Adrian Ross.
