AA patrols vote to strike

AA patrol staff have voted to strike in a battle over pensions.

Patrol staff voted 57% in favour of industrial action, which could lead to the first strike in the organisation's 105-year history.

The Independent Democratic Union (IDU), which represents the AA patrol staff, claimed there was 'widespread anger' over the motoring body's plans to cap pension payouts.

No dates set yet
No dates for strikes have been set and the IDU is calling for the AA to return to the negotiating table for more talks.

The AA wants to put a cap on annual increases in pensions, while also increasing staff contributions to the scheme.

The company's final salary scheme has already been closed to new recruits.
