Newsflash: Talks To End Strike Begin

August 9, 1885 ·

Talks to end the dispute over job security for workers at the Department for the Advancement of Sciences have started.

Representatives from the Union for the Casual Labourer  met Government officials last night, in a move to end the two week long industrial action.

A joint statement released stated that both sides recognise there will be  “very tough” industrial and economic challenges  in the coming years.

The statement said that all sides accept there will be no further development of the Clockwork Project in the UK, until an agreement is reached.

Unions are asking for cast iron assurances that workers will not be replaced by the automata they are helping to build.
