Jaguar Workers Want More Family Time

Minutes after the Peugeot strike threat ended, Jaguar workers submitted a claim for improved pay and conditions.

Union leaders have asked bosses to cut the working week from 37 to 35 hours.

And they have also made a unique step by asking the Coventry-based car firm to extend parental leave.

Improvements in holidays and pensions for manual workers have also been demanded.

Tony Woodley, of the TGWU said:

“We have made a series of annual pay and conditions claims but this time we are making an industry first by asking for paid parental leave.”

The workers want to be paid for the 13 weeks parental leave that the Government has introduced as unpaid time off.

A Jaguar spokeswoman said the demands were part of the annual pay negotiations and would be dealt with in the normal way.

The proposals will go out to consultation before negotiations begin with the unions in about four weeks’ time.
