News: 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.
