Nissan car workers accept pay deal for next two years

Workers at car giant Nissan have accepted a pay deal worth 2.75% in each of the next two years.

Around 7,400 employees based in Sunderland and at the Nissan Technical Centre Europe at Cranfield, Bedfordshire, backed the agreement by 2-1.

There will also be a £750 lump sum next year and an increase in maternity paid leave from January 2017, said Unite.

National officer Tony Murphy said: "This is excellent news for this hardworking and dedicated workforce which has been in the vanguard of the renaissance in the UK car industry in recent years."
