Archive : BLMC strike ends

The end of the month long pay strike by British Road Services transport drivers in the Midlands yesterday meant that British Leyland was able to recall almost all of its 15,000 car workers laid off as a result of the drivers’ stoppage.

The Austin-Morris group of factories alone has lost output of some 44,000 cars and the Triumph and Jaguar plants have lost another 9,000. In all BLMC has suffered production losses of vehicles worth, at showroom prices, about £54m during a dispute over which it had no control.
