JCB staff vote for shorter week

JCB staff vote for shorter week

Thousands of JCB staff have accepted a shorter working week in order to save about 350 jobs across the UK. The GMB union said 2,500 of its members in the UK had accepted a 34-hour week by a two-thirds majority. The firm, based in Rocester, Staffordshire, had said 500 jobs could be axed if the plan was not accepted and 150 jobs will still be cut. JCB has 11 factories across the UK and said fewer working hours had been its preferred option.

  • You seem really happy about this, id like to be able to afford a house but gloating about potential misery for thousands of working class families is out of order
