Work­ers at Jaguar Land Rover have over­whelm­ingly backed a two-year pay deal de­scribed as “ex­cep­tional” by their union.

Unite said its mem­bers voted by 77 per cent to ac­cept a rise of 3.5% plus a £750 bonus, fol­lowed by an in­fla­tion-proofed re­tail price in­dex in­crease plus 0.5% rise in year two.

The deal, which runs from the start of this month, af­fects work­ers at JLR’s plants in Cas­tle Bromwich, Coven­try, Hale­wood, Soli­hull and Wolver­hamp­ton.

Unite of­fi­cer Roger Mad­di­son said: “This ex­cep­tional pay deal is no less than the work­force de­serve.”
