UK - Union leaders have called a one-day strike at Peugeot's Ryton plant over pay and pension issues.
The workers voted earlier this month to support strike action after rejecting a two-year pay package from the company that would have seen the pension contributions of 4000 employees rise from 4% to 5%.
The strike will take place over four shifts between February 13 and 14.
Transport & General Workers’ Union national secretary for the car industry, Dave Osborne, said: “The company should take notice of the wishes of the workforce who are seeking an improved offer.
“The unions are ready and willing to talk at any time.
“We urge Peugeot to return to the negotiating table in order to reach a settlement and avert what could be a damaging dispute.”
