Archive : Strikes Affect Car Parts Production

FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
BIRMINGHAM, FEB. 6

There were strikes at two British Motor Corporation factories in Birmingham today.

Production was halted when about 850 workers, most of the labour force, remained idle at the S.U. carburettor factory, which supplies carburettors and fuel pumps for most B.M.C. models. The men are striking in protest against the suspension of a tool- room worker. He is due to resume work tomorrow, and the strike is expected to end.

At the Fisher and Ludlow factory, which makes car bodies, about 600 toolroom workers are on strike over a bonus payment dispute. A member of the management said it would be a day or two before other departments were affected.
