NEW STOPPAGE AT JAGUAR’S
750 sent home
Car assembly was stopped at Jaguar Cars, Coventry, yesterday for the fifth time this year. The firm had to send home 750 production workers following a series of spasmodic stoppages during the week by the 400 trim shop men who recently caused seven days loss of production when they struck over a pay claim.
A spokesman for the firm, at Coventry, said last night: “We were forced to send them home because of a spate of unofficial strikes by 400 trim shop workers over piecework rates.” The strikes, which have lasted for between one and two hours, are in defiance of union officials.”
