Archive : Production disrupted

Production was disrupted at dozens of factories in Wales yesterday as engineering workers staged a one-day strike in protest against the Industrial Relations Act and the £55,000 fine on the engineering union over the case of Mr James Goad.

Local union leaders said most of the 13,500 engineering workers in west Wales and Swansea supported the strike call but some factories reported a normal turn-out. The Pressed Steel Fisher car components factory at Felinfoel, Llanelli, which employs 2,000, was closed. The adjoining British Leyland components factory said 400 men stayed away.
