WIN! Unite drives hard bargain to secure “exceptional” pay deal at Jaguar Land Rover

jaguar-land-rover-jlrWorkers at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) have overwhelmingly backed an ‘exceptional pay deal for an exceptional workforce’ in a consultative ballot, Unite has  announced.

More than three quarters (77%) of those voting gave the ‘thumbs up’ to the two-year deal of 3.5%, plus a £750 bonus in year one, with an inflation-proofed retail price index (RPI) plus 0.5% rise in year two.

The deal, which will be backdated to 1 November this year, affects workers at JLR’s workplaces in Castle Bromwich, Coventry, Halewood, Solihull and Wolverhampton.

Unite national officer Roger Maddison said: “This exceptional pay deal is no less than the workforce at JLR deserve and is recognition of their continued hard work which has made the carmaker such a world beater.

“It is testament to workforce’s skills and dedication that JLR can look to the future with confidence and only right they share in the carmaker’s continued success.”
