THE GUARDIAN

About 400 engine fitters at the Triumph factory at Coventry went on strike at the end of yesterday’s day shift over a piecework dispute. Car plants at Coventry were estimated yesterday to have lost almost £3 millions in production because of Monday’s one-day strike by toolroom workers.

The men, who plan to strike each Monday, are angry at the employers decision to cancel the 30-year-old Coventry toolroom agreement and instead rely on plant bargaining.
