Labour troubles at the Triumph car plant at Coventry have led to production at the company’s two plants on Merseyside being brought to a standstill. Although the Midlands dispute involving 37 toolroom workers is settled, disruption resulting from their strike, over an internal pay grievance, has caused progressive lay-offs this week.

By the end of night shifts early yesterday, production stopped at the two factories at Speke, and a total of 2,700 workers were idle. They will not report back for work until Tuesday when the effects of the Midlands dispute should have eased.
