The Austin Rover Dispute
Austin Rover called in British Telecom yesterday to install emergency telephone lines at its Longbridge and Cowley assembly plants to handle calls which it said, were flooding in from workers who want to return.
Yesterday another 1,000 workers voted to return making nearly 10,000 in all, Austin Rover said last night. At Longbridge 850 had returned, and at Cowley, 650. The company has 28,000 manual workers.
