Union leaders yesterday called an overtime ban at the Peugeot car plant in Coventry to be followed by an all-out strike unless management settles a pay claim and withdraws plans for longer shifts. Members of the Transport and General Workers' Union and the Amalgamated Engineering and Electrical Union will refuse to work overtime from next week Friday and walk out on indefinite strike a week later.

The decision to delay the start of disruption allows breathing space for negotiations. At Iveco Ford workers have voted to fight the closure of the plant at Slough, Berkshire.
