Marion searches everywhere for her ring. Sharon refuses to be put off Brian just because he's married. Mike is surprised that the Weatherfield factory is more efficient than the London one. Annie's wristwatch goes missing. Vera reads the time and motion report in Mike's office. She doesn't understand a word of it. Mike lets the girls think he's closing the factory before telling them they're not as efficient as the London office and the report recommends he makes redundancies. He tells them that he's not going to sack anyone if they agree to no pay rise this year and to work harder. Sharon borrows a friend's bike and punctures it. She then asks Brian to repair it. The girls thank Mike for saving their jobs. The London shop steward tells Ida that Mike is making 25% of them redundant and asks her to support them. The girls are puzzled. Brian repairs Sharon's bike, knowing that she fancies him. Eddie hears that jewellery has been stolen from the area. Milly Webster travels up from London and tells the girls that they should join forces to strike back at Mike.
