COWLEY EMPLOYEES STOP WORK
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
OXFORD, JUNE 19

All the production lines at the Cowley works of Morris Motors, Ltd., except that of the Mini-Minor, were halted this afternoon by a stoppage in the mounting shop in protest against a three days suspension by the management of two men for alleged bad workmanship. One of them is said to have been warned on 10 occasions for bad workmanship and the other on six.
