Pickets have been withdrawn from the two Triumph factories at Speke Hall and Woodend, Speke, Liverpool, where 270 clerks have been on unofficial stoppage since last Wednesday. A mass meeting of strikers has been called for tomorrow and a peace formula will be offered.
A strike leader said that Mr Roy Grantham, general secretary of APEX, of which the strikers are members, is to meet members of the strike committee tomorrow. The clerks want a rise of Â£7 to bring them level with female factory workers, and they have rejected £3.
