One hundred maintenance engineers at the Standard – Triumph plant at Speke, will meet today. They have been on unofficial strike since Tuesday over a dispute about overtime work at weekends. Their stoppage has made 1,000 production workers idle at the Liverpool plant, which makes bodies for the assembly plant at Coventry.
The interruption in supplies resulted yesterday in 400 workers being laid at Coventry and a company official said more workers would made idle in the next few days if the dispute continued.
