Issue No. 1771

ROSSINGTON Miners are back on all-out strike. They returned to work for one day last week to overcome legal complications. The decision to return to work for 24 hours was taken after NUM members voted to strike in a second ballot.

The aim was to stop UK Coal legally dismissing them after eight weeks. NUM representative Chris Skidmore said, 'The strike is as solid as ever. But we need more solidarity collections than ever.'
