Archive : 1100 car workers idle

Eleven hundred men at the Morris Motors factory at Cowley, Oxford, were sent home today because 170 men in the neighbouring Pressed Steel Company’s works walked out yesterday after a number of mechanical breakdowns in one of the new lines producing the latest B.M.C. car bodies.

The Morris men were laid off when car bodies failed to arrive. Eight hundred men will be idle again on Monday.
