Pit Boys Strike After Summonses
The trouble at Denaby Main Colliery spread further yesterday when only a dozen of the haulage hands on the morning shift turned for work, with the result that about men had return home.
This means that all the shifts at the colliery are now involved in the dispute, and men are affected.
The boys’ latest action follows the issuing during the week-end of summonses by the colliery company against about 80 of the haulage hands for alleged breach of contract.
