The Factory and the City Summary


The Factory and the City: Story of the Cowley Automobile Workers in Oxford by Edited by Teresa Hayter

This work questions the relationship between corporate planning and local communities which must live with the consequences of corporate decisions. Based on a case study of the partial closure of the Rover Group's plant at Cowley (part of whose work is to be transferred to Honda's new, non-union plant on a greenfield site at Swindon), the authors show how corporations take decisions based on private profitability which override the interests of workers and the community.
