Unite puts the brakes on BMW’s plans to close the company’s current pension scheme to new entrants
Unite has put the brakes on BMW’s plans to close the company’s current pension scheme to new entrants.
The company has today agreed with Unite to enter into a meaningful dialogue in regard to the company’s pension scheme.
BMW has also agreed it will not proceed with its plan to use Regulation 10 (the Swedish Derogation) in the Agency Workers Regulations and discussions will take place between the union and the company on the continued use of agency workers.
The agreements reached have been endorsed by all shop stewards across BMW and Rolls Royce Motor Cars in the UK.
Unite national officer Roger Maddison said: “As always we are prepared to have meaningful discussions with companies in the car industry. Unite is determined to protect all the terms and conditions of our members and ensure that agency workers are treated fairly, in the true spirit of the agency workers legislation.”
