Archive : Acocks Green strike

There was no production yesterday at British Leyland’s Rover engine factory at Acocks Green, Birmingham. About 800 workers walked out complaining about too frequent lay-offs resulting from a strike by inspectors at Alvis, Coventry. A Rover spokesman said the Alvis strikers had agreed to resume on Monday and it was hoped to make a full recall of men laid off.
