UK: Land Rover workers agree pay deal
Workers at Land Rover facilities in the UK have accepted a pay offer ending the threat of further strikes.
The BBC noted that employees had rejected a 6.5% pay increase offered over two years and recently staged two 24-hour strikes at the company's Solihull plant in the West Midlands.
A fresh ballot was held and 65% of those voting had accepted the two-year offer, the Amicus union reportedly confirmed.
Unions had argued that Land Rover workers should earn the same as those at Jaguar, which is also owned by US car giant Ford.
National officer for Amicus Duncan Simpson told the BBC it was "great news" that staff at both the plant in Solihull and at Land Rover's site at Gaydon, Warwickshire, had reached an agreement with management.
He added: "We can concentrate on securing a future for our members at Solihull and Gaydon.
"We will be seeking a commitment from the company for long term investment in new products for both centres."
