At the British Leyland plant in Longbridge, Birmingham, unofficial strikers whose walkout has stopped all car production and made 10,000 other workers idle were given a direct instruction by union officials yesterday to return to work immediately.
Without any management commitment about further negotiations on their demands for bigger increases under a new plant pay deal, they at once voted to call off their strike. Last night the company announced that it was immediately recalling all laid-off workers.
