Bus workers back miners

Issue No. 1

A strike by workers at the National Welsh bus garage in Porth, South Wales, has forced their management to lift a ban on hiring coaches for miners' flying pickets.

Gwyn Jones, the GMBATU shop steward, says, 'Our management were being ordered by national management who were being ordered by the government. Everyone in the depot was incensed.'

The bus workers also voted £400 to the miners' strike fund.
