Workers at car giant BMW have voted to reject an offer aimed at resolving a long-running dispute over pensions.
Members of the Unite union based at plants in Cowley, Goodwood near Chichester, Hams Hall in the West Midlands and Swindon, turned down an offer by 56.6%.
Unite shop stewards from BMW plants will be meeting on Tuesday to discuss the next steps in the dispute over the company's plans to close the final salary scheme.
Workers have staged four walkouts, hitting engine, Mini and Rolls-Royce car production.
Unite national officer Fred Hanna said:
Three 24-hour strikes scheduled in May were suspended while workers considered the offer, which would see the closure of the final salary pension scheme and workers moved into a defined contribution scheme.
