Workers at Peugeot’s Ryton plant in Coventry are planning a one-day strike on 27 July, and could begin an all-out strike, in a dispute over new shift-working arrangements.

At a meeting with management, the Transport and General Workers Union said they would recommend the latest pay offer, but the workforce rejected the deal, voting instead to strike. A spokesperson for the TGWU said: `Our members are ready to take action. We hope to have another meeting with management soon.’

The strike may harm the plant’s future if Peugeot’s French owner, PSA, abandons plans to build the 206 replacement and Citroen models there.
