Union members at Warwickshire factory may strike unless pay dispute is resolved
2 April 2007

Workers at Aston Martin’s Gaydon factory have voted to strike in a dispute over pay.

The dispute is over pay rises for the next two years. Workers rejected an offer of 6.75 per cent rises over the next two years, due to the possibility of receiving up to £2500 less than someone doing the same job.

It’s bad news for Aston Martin, which was recently bought by a consortium led by Prodrive’s David Richards.

The workers who have elected to strike are 656 members of the Transport and General Workers' Union; members of the Amicus union are to vote on Thursday.

A spokesman for the TGWU, Des Quinn, said: "Whilst there are other outstanding issues that needed to be addressed, we believe they can be resolved by negotiation.”
