    Background: More than a million workers stayed home in Britain today (Monday) in a one-day official strike designed to kill union reform plans. A second and bigger protest is planned for March 18.

    The strike, by engineering workers, stopped production of national newspapers and brought motor assembly lines to a halt. But one exception was the financially-troubled Rolls-Royce, whose workers mainly ignored the order to strike.
