Production at Morris Motors radiators branch in north Oxford was stopped today by a one-day token strike by 800 day shift workers.

The shop stewards’ committee said that the strike was a protest against supervisory staff loading a lorry last Friday while dispatch workers were not in the factory. They said that the management had directed the supervisory staff to load the lorry in spite of requests not to do so by the chief shop steward and trade union officials.
