Eddie's constant taunting of Bill spills over into the workplace.

With Eddie acting as shop steward in the closed shop factory, Bill decides to form his own union and takes all the other coloured employees with him. Eddie's none too pleased and calls all his men out on strike in response!

Meanwhile, Bill's father is visiting, having flown in all the way from Trinidad to see his son. He hits it off straight away with Eddie's mother, who's made an unannounced and rather unwanted trip down from Manchester, something that neither son is happy about.
