FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
COVENTRY, JAN. 17

Over 150 shop stewards of Standard- Triumph International Ltd., of Coventry, who last week summarily rejected the firm’s proposals for the cutting of wages of its 6,000 production men, agreed today to consider some reductions to help the company in an attempt to cut production costs.

But senior shop stewards will tell management representatives tomorrow that they consider only some piecework rates should be adjusted. and that managerial costs should also be reduced. After today’s meeting, a leading union official said: “The feeling was that if there are anomalies in some piecework rates then procedure exists for ironing them out. But there must be some indication that the firm is also making an effort to reduce managerial costs.”

The proposed lower wage scales would only be effective when the factories resume full production over a five- day week. At present, a three-day week is being operated.
