Archive : Strike update

At British Leyland’s Triumph plant, also in Coventry, production is still halted by a strike of 25 control room operators who are demanding an interim pay increase. Another 3,000 production workers are laid off. Settlement of the strike by 1,300 workers at the British Leyland car body plant at Castle Bromwich, where another 5,000 men were laid off, last week, enabled production to resume yesterday.

This in turn meant that 2,000 Jaguar car workers at Coventry could be recalled with another 600 day shift workers from the Longbridge plant in Birmingham.
