JAGUAR PROTEST OVER STOPPAGES
Effect on exports
In a protest over a strike of 400 trim shop workers which has halted car assembly a spokesman for Jaguar Cars Ltd., of Coventry, said at the weekend that because of four unofficial stoppages this year the company had no margin of time to spare to meet delivery deadlines.
“Should the current unofficial stoppage continue, it cannot do otherwise than result in a considerable loss of business, both at home and overseas. A successful export business depends mainly on competitive pricing and prompt delivery. These unofficial strikes are denuding Jaguar of both these vital assets.”
The spokesman added that not a single advantage had been gained from any of the stoppages.
