    Background: Workers in 17 Pirelli-Donlop factories in Italy walked out on Friday (9 June) as part of an Angle-Italian strike against the rubber combine. A two-hour token stoppage had been planned for each of the morning, afternoon and evening shifts.

    The international strike, a new departure in international industrial relations, is over the sacking of come 8,500 men -- more than 6,000 of them in Britain -- and other cost reducing measures imposed since Pirelli and Dunlop merged in 1970.

    At the large Pirelli-Dunlop factory in Milan, workers attended a meeting on the factory sports field. During the morning stoppage, one of the speakers was the Deputy Convener of the British Rubber Workers Group, Charles Parker from Liverpool, who briefed the men on the situation in Britain.

    Workers in 17 British factories were holding a full day's strike on Friday.
