Archive : Longbridge car men vote to end strike

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.
