Aston Martin workers accept 'outstanding' pay deal

A two-year pay deal hailed as "outstanding" has been accepted by workers at luxury car firm Aston Martin.

The agreement includes a 3% rise in January and at least another 3% the following year.

Unite regional officer Tim Parker said: "This outstanding deal - the best deal in the long proud history of Aston Martin - is the culmination of many months of difficult negotiations between Unite and the company.

"This record deal recognises the tremendous efforts and great skills that the whole of the Aston Martin workforce has continually contributed during many very difficult years recently to maintain Aston Martin as a worldwide renowned UK producer of fantastic luxury premier cars, which have a great future."

Unite members backed the deal by 9-1.
