Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) said on Monday its British operations could be hampered if the strike call by the workers of outsourced logistics division goes ahead.
“We are preparing for potential disruption (of production). We have a plan in place should that situation arise, though we are not directly involved with the strike and are closely monitoring the situation,” a JLR spokesperson told reporters on Monday. There has been no production loss as yet, he added.
According to The Sunday Times report, delivery workers from DHL at JLR’s England plants have voted for strike, demanding a large pay rise and terms and conditions on par with the JLR staff.
The staff of logistics giant DHL, which has about 1,800 workers at the three JLR factories perform a key role in managing warehouse operations and bringing parts to production lines. Those at Halewood are due to vote later on Monday.
