Carole Nash Classic Insurance Specialists

Senior officials of four unions met in London last night and recommended that 800 strikers at Fisher and Ludlow’s car body works at Erdington. Birmingham should go back and talks on their dispute go on.

The unofficial strike began after an inter-union dispute over work allocation. Four thousand other workers at the factory were laid off and supplies of car bodies to British Motor Corporation assembly plants were cut off. Altogether some 7,500 workers in Birmingham and Oxford were affected. In view of the union’s recommendation the B.M.C. asked all its employees who have been affected by the dispute to return to work at normal starting times today in anticipation of a resumption of normal working at Fisher and Ludlow Ltd.
