Halifax car workers strike

Issue No. 2191

Workers at car parts manufacturer Metadyne, in Halifax, Yorkshire, were to strike for three days from Wednesday this week.

Unite union members rejected plans to work an additional four hours a week—unpaid—and pay cuts on some shifts. Workers called off industrial action last December when management backed down, but attempts to enforce changes have put it back on the agenda.
