656 Aston Martin Gaydon Facility Workers to Strike
Bad news for Aston Martin today as 656 Workers from their Gaydon facility plan to strike because of “a dispute over pay.”
Currently there are a total number of 1100 workers at this plant and this would me more than half would be going on strike resulting in a huge loss or production for this facility.
What are these angry Aston Martin workers disputing? According to Autocar they are rejecting a “6.75 per cent rises over the next two years , due to the possiblity of receiving £2500 less than somone doing the same job.”
Lets hope that the Transportation and General Workers Union can resolve this isssue with fair negotiation for the workers. After all this is the famous plany where DB9’s and DB9 Volantes are birthed- the automotive world needs as many as these as they can get.
