Issue No. 1857

CAR WORKERS in the Amicus union at the Honda car plant in Swindon have won a 3.7 percent pay claim. Jim D'Avila, Amicus regional secretary, said, 'This result is an important victory and demonstrates the value of union membership.'

Amicus was only recognised at the plant last year. The union is fighting Honda's attempts to increase the pension age for workers from 60 to 62.
