British automotive workers have begun a 24-hour strike to protest proposed changes to their pensions, reports Sky News.
The strikes are taking place at three BMW plants in the UK; the automaker announced recently that it planned to close its defined benefit plans next year.
The walkout, according to the union, involves “2,000 staff and production lines for the Mini vehicle and car engines,” reports Sky News.
“Today’s solidly-supported strike should serve as a wake-up call to BMW’s bosses and underlines the determination of Unite members to defend their hard earned pensions,” Unite assistant general secretary for manufacturing Tony Burke is quoted saying.
