Swiftly removing collieries from our landscape follows a kind of "scorched earth" politics aimed at removing every trail of those who have established societies and are hoping for coming generation. While the NUM is able to keep fighting in the years to come by defending, safeguarding and defending the many achievements of mining people and their towns.
Wrong corrections still need to be made, safeguards arrangements and our continuing conviction that it is a safer resource that can be used by the UK and is best manufactured by UK mineworkers will constantly remind those who have extradited the UK to import that we have not yet completely disappeared.
The National Union of Mineworkers (Great Britain)
Meanwhile, in January 1945, the German Mining Trade Federation replaced the MFA. Initially, a nationwide vote called for a two-thirds vote of the members, but turned out to be almost impossibility, and the minority was cut to 55% in 1970 and 50% in 1984. The regions of the trade unions could call their own industrial action.
Various areas diversified how military they were, and it was not unusual that there were hostilities between the areas. In some areas, the NUM was militant and in 1981 it was threatening to go on strike when the regime brought up the problem, but since the regime was not prepared for a clash, it was negotiating a solution with the trade unions and withdrew from the lock-up.
Ian MacGregor, who had supervised cuts and closings at the British Steel Corporation, was named Chairman of the NCoal Board by Thatcher in 1983. 14 ] LAs organized walkout, but NUM President Arthur Scargill in March 1984 announced a nationwide walkout that was found unlawful in England, so strikers were not entitled to any benefit.

Yorkshire was also more excited about the strikes than Nottinghamshire, where many workers declined to do so. Closing down the state colliery was ended when a renegade trade Union, the UDMM, was founded mainly by mineworkers in Nottinghamshire and South Derbyshire who felt they had been sold out by the NUM because they insisted on a strikes after their regional vote had declined strikes.
Conversely, the region of Léicestershire remained in the NUM because area manager Jack Jones had maintained good relationships with locals by frankly opposing Scargill. Despite being undermined by the strikes, the NUM remained a significant power until the early 90s. NUM held a nationwide vote on a possible strikes, which was adopted by the members.
She worked with the National Association of Colliery Overmen, Deputies and Shotfirers to appeal the closure in the High Courts; the tribunal issued a restraining order against the closure and the strikes were aborted. From mid-1993, however, the collieries began to close; the number of working coal workers and thus also the number of members of the trade unions decreased further.
Formal nationwide strik. That ended after the battle at Saltley Gate, where the miners' picket posts were backed by engineers' demonstrations of support in the Birmingham area.
