Talks which went on for six hours here today between the management of the British Motor Corporation and Mr Frank Foulkes, president of the Electrical Trades Union, failed to lead towards a settlement of the five-week-old strike of 32 maintenance electricians at the Adderley Park factory of Morris Commercial cars.
The dispute, which has made 1,700 men idle and virtually halted production at the factory, is over the employment of a non- union man Mr Robert Hale.
