Fifteen hundred employees at the Rover motor company components factories in Birmingham turned up for work yesterday after nine days idleness.
They stopped work originally following a pay strike by car parts inspectors. The 1500, who said they would not work without inspectors, went back yesterday on union orders.
But last night union leaders declared the inspectors strike official at Acocks Green branch factory where it started. Production at the main Rover plant at nearby Solihull has stopped.
