Archive : Car men go back – then out again


The second strike in two days yesterday again halted car production at the Morris Motors assembly factory at Cowley, Oxford. About 2,500 workers were sent home when 150 men at the axle hub-assembly section, stopped work over a proposed cutback in production of the Maxi.

Work had only just returned to normal after Monday’s one day strike-also over the cutback proposals. A further 350 Rover workers were laid off in Solihull and Birmingham yesterday because of the continuing strike by 600 men at the company’s axle and gearbox factory in Cardiff.
