Meanwhile all British Leyland’s factories will open tomorrow in an attempt to carry on as normal despite the move by militants to call the company’s toolroom men out on strike. Assembly line workers have approached Leyland management offering to take the place of toolroom workers in the company operating running repairs and enabling the production lines to carry on In the event of breakdowns.
Last night a Leyland management spokesman, said: “The factories will all startup on Monday. We have assurances from the production lines that every effort is going to be made to keep things going. As the toolroom men know, there are several factories in the group where attempts to call workers are not being supported.”
