About 350 motor workers struck in Birmingham yesterday after the management was understood to have refused to re-time a job on a grinding machine. The machine is operated by a senior shop steward at the Rover Company’s factory in Greet, Birmingham, which makes gearbox components. A management official said: “The strike is unofficial and there will be no discussions until the men return to work.”
