Description
Derek Robinson, union convenor of the Longbridge assembly plant in Birmingham, accuses British Leyland management of telling lies. The pamphlet that ostensibly caused the trouble, says Robinson, simply presented an alternative viewpoint to that of the undetailed and emotive document on which workers had had to base their vote.
