Not a minute on the day, not a penny off the pay” – the 1926 Miners’ Lock Out and General Strike

The 1926 General Strike lasted 9 days and inspired millions of workers to back the TUC’s call for action to defend locked out coal-miners who were facing wage reductions and worsening conditions. As a heavily industrialised region, members of Unite’s legacy unions in the North East, Yorkshire and Humberside region were centrally involved. This short booklet tells the story of those momentous days.
