Jaguar Workers To Vote On Pay Deal

Jaguar workers are being asked to vote on a new inflation-busting pay offer described by bosses as “excellent”.

Union leaders have spent months hammering out the agreement with management, and the workforce will now be consulted on the proposals.

Central to the new package is a basic pay rise of more than 4 per cent. There will also be another increase of 3.5 per cent, or the rate of inflation plus 0.5 per cent, whichever is greater, in a year’s time.

Jaguar today released a statement say that it awaited the outcome of the unions' consultation process.

The statement read:

“After detailed and lengthy negotiations, Jaguar Cars Limited has made its final offer, which is currently being presented by Trade Union representatives to their members.

“We believe it is an excellent offer and one which reflects continued collaboration with our workforce.”

There is an extra day’s holiday for employees who have been with the company for more than ten years, and team leaders will also get extra pay.

The pay offer comes after reports of a split between trade unionists and management during the negotiations.

There was fear that the discord at Peugeot could spread to Jaguar’s Browns Lane plant in Allesley.

But managers, riding high after a year of record sales, said the disagreement was just a normal part of the discussion process.
