Austin Rover Pay Strike begins
Austin shop stewards to defy strike ballot call

By Clifford Webb A delegate meeting of 120 Austin Rover shop stewards’ voted yesterday to defy the company’s intention to use new legislation to force secret balloting, and gave their backing to a strike which halted all the company’s car production. They had been encouraged by the news that 25,000 of the 28,000 manual workers had obeyed the strike call issued by their leaders when pay talks broke down on Friday night.
