Archive : Deadlock Continues In Rover Strike

GLASGOW HERALD

There was still deadlock yesterday in the two week old strike of 39 sheet metal workers in the Coventry branch works of the Rover Motor Company , Solihull , near Birmingham . The strikers produce sub-assemblies for the Land Rover .

The dispute threatens to bring work to a standstill at the main factory at Solihull by next weekend , with possibly 4000 workers becoming idle . About 1800 are already laid off at Solihull .

The strike began on January 29 over the engagement of a replacement worker in place of a man who left the strikers section . A company official said that until the men returned to work there could be no negotiations .
