24-HOUR STRIKE BY CAR FACTORY CLERKS
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
COVENTRY. SEPT. 20

Standard Triumph International. Ltd.. remained silent on the effects of a 24-hour strike today by its 800 clerical workers at the car factory here, but the unions claimed that assembly tracks were halted and up to 1,000 production men sent home. The stoppage, in protest against the rejection of their claim for an extra 30s. a week, was the first of what the workers threaten will be one-day-a-week strikes until further notice.
