BWM to shut final-salary pension schemes
Luxury car maker BMW has announced plans to close its two final-salary pension schemes which would impact around 5,000 staff.
Trade union Unite has vowed to battle the German brand over planned changes as the manufacturer begins consulting with affected employees, including those at its plant in Hams Hall, Coleshill.
BMW intends to close the two schemes to future benefits from June next year with Unite vowing to fight the proposals "tooth and claw".
