NotesNews: 9 Jan: Coal miners walked out at midnight in their first national strike for
almost 50 years. Three months of negotiations with the National Coal Board ended in deadlock with
an offer of 7.9% on the table and the promise of a backdated deal for an increase in
productivity. The 280,000 mineworkers signalled their determination to break the Government's
unofficial eight per cent pay ceiling by refusing to put the offer to the vote. They were looking
for an increase of up to £9 a week - on an average take home wage of £25. Miners had been
observing an overtime ban since 1 November in support of their pay claim, The NCB announced it
was withdrawing its pay offer as it became clear the miners were intent on striking.
