24hr strike at Plant Oxford

Just heard on the news, there's a 24hr strike at Plant Oxford, something to do with a dispute over pensions.


You've got to hand it to them, taking the nostalgia to a whole new level, it's like British Leyland in the 70s all over again.

Yes Karl posted this recently but 1 strike is hardly up to BL standards!

A one day strike in about the last 18 years and a just cause as they are being shafted over their pension.

Never saw Karls post, wouldn't have posted if I had. It was meant a bit tongue in cheek, and on reflection half the folk on here won't even have heard of BL
