Archive : Morris car men to resume work

A resumption of work at Morris Commercial Cars, Ltd, will take place next Wednesday, and the dispute will now be dealt with through constitutional procedure, as a result of an understanding reached between the Employers’ National Federation and the Electrical Trades Union.

The strike started nearly six weeks ago when 32 maintenance electricians refused to work with a non-unionist at the Adderley Park factory, Birmingham. Some 1,700 British Motor Corporation workers were made idle by the dispute.

  1. Been reading lots of these archive posts lately and this stuff is just baffling.i`m a Labour man, but this is not the way social equity reached! Crazy.. “We refuse to work with this guy because he`s not one of us!” So 1700 workers laid down work over this utterly non-democratic conflict..
