Austin Rover to resume work at Cowley

Under pressure from the manual unions, Austin Rover has decided to recall 2,000 workers and resume production of Montego and Maestro cars at its plant at Cowley, Oxford. A meeting of more than 100 shop stewards yesterday voted to ask the company to re-open the gates so that production of the two models could restart while discussions on the impact of an overtime ban continue. There were hopes of a settlement before 4.15 pm today.
