Union for 7,000 recovery staff unhappy with pensions change

AA roadside patrol workers may take strike action over changes to their pensions made by parent private equity group Acromas, the FT reports.

The move comes as Acromas prepares for a possible initial public offering (IPO), which would make it a FTSE 100 company with a value of as much as £10bn.

The Independent Democratic Union, which represents many of the AA's 7,000 staff, said it would put the company's improved offer to a ballot of its members and would consider calling for a strike if it was rejected.
