Strikeat Aston Martin.
Members of the Transport and General Workers' Union at factories in Bloxham, Oxfordshire, and Newport Pagnell, in Buckinghamshire, were walking out just before noon and will remain on strike throughout tomorrow.
The union is protesting at planned new shifts it has dubbed "Martini shifts" as production staff fear they will be required to work "any time, anywhere" the company wants.
The action involves about 430 workers.
