JLR, DHL say strike contingency plans ready

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and logistics firm DHL said on Monday plans were in place to minimise the impact on production at the carmaker’s British plants from a threatened strike by DHL staff, Reuters reported. 

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and logistics firm DHL said on Monday plans were in place to minimise the impact on production at the carmaker’s British plants from a threatened strike by DHL staff, Reuters reported. 

About 750 of the 1,000 DHL employees serving JLR’s plants at Castle Bromwich and Solihull in central England voted for a walkout last week over the company’s refusal to award them similar terms and conditions to some JLR staff. 

The Unite union wants a 12.8 per cent pay rise over two years for employees who sort parts and 20.6 per cent for drivers. DHL said it had offered staff a 4.5 per cent rise for 2013, plus a guaranteed three per cent for 2014.
