300 Strike At Morris Motors Factory

Three hundred workers in the trim shop at the Morris Motors factory, Cowley, Oxford, stopped work today after the management refused to remove a foreman from his job.

The men were sent home. Later, the men decided to return to work tomorrow so that their complaint could be discussed. A British Motor Corporation official said a complaint was made by about 24 men last week. After a meeting between the works superintendent and the supervisors the men said that matters had improved and they were not taking the complaint farther.
