1,300 Jaguar Men Sent Home
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
COVENTRY, JULY 31
For the sixth time this year production has been disrupted by an unofficial stoppage at Jaguar Cars Ltd., Coventry.
At luncheon time today 1,300 men were sent home after 50 internal transport drivers walked out because of a revised bonus scheme. Those laid off, a day after their annual fortnight’s holiday, were told to report back tomorrow morning, when the working position will be reviewed. Management said that the strikers acted against the advice and instructions of their shop stewards and before their grievance could be discussed through the usual channels of negotiation.
