Two thousand production men who make Triumph Heralds at the Standard-Triumph works at Coventry were sent home at lunchtime yesterday because of the effects of the strike of 100 disabled workers at the Coventry factory of Remploy.
As the decision to send the Standard men home was reached, it was announced that the Remploy dispute had been settled and the firm had agreed to reinstate a partially blind man and woman over whose dismissal the strike began on Friday. The Remploy factory makes fascia panels for Triumph Herald cars.
