Archive : Jaguars men throw out two-year pay deal

DAILY EXPRESS

Jaguar was facing trouble last night after workers rejected a two- year pay deal. By 5,604 to 2,373 votes, the Coventry based car men—many of whom have been shareholders since privatisation—said the timespan was too long and the offer too little.

It would have given 4.5 per cent rise this year with a similar increase in 1990, boosting earnings by £15 a week, with a further £15 from bonus schemes consolidated into basic wages. The company is furious that the vote was influenced by Nissan’s decision to give its workers in the North-East rises worth 15 per cent this year with a further 7.5 per cent or enough to match thc level of inflation next year.
