The British Motor Corporation factory of Tractor and Transmissions, Ltd.. Birmingham, where an unofficial strike of internal transport drivers and loaders resulted in over 22,000 other B.M.C. workers being laid off, resumed normal working yesterday on the return of the strikers.

Final agreement was reached at Coventry yesterday on proposals for a shorter working week for the 11,000 employees of Standard-Triumph International Ltd. A 40-75 hour working week is to be introduced instead of the present 42-5 hours. Assembly track speeds are to be adjusted to maintain existing production levels. Wages will not be affected.
