Help With Costs
Denaby Main Miners Aid Haulage Hands
When it was decided that work should be resumed at Denaby Main colliery, after the Pit lads strike, the 1500 men at the pit agreed to help the 80 haulage hands, who for breaches of contract arising out of previous strikes, were ordered by Doncaster West Riding Justices to pay damages and costs.
About £200 is involved and it has been agreed that there shall be a 3d stoppage in wages until the money has been wiped out. This will take about eight weeks.
An application is being made to the colliery company to undertake the deduction of the money from the wages
