Working Conditions In Private Licensed Mines

EDM number 1522 in 1992-93, proposed by Peter Hain on 04/03/1993.

That this House calls on the Government to institute a full investigation into breaches of employment law and health and safety by private licensed mine owners who are returning to nineteenth century working conditions which could well occur on an even wider scale following the planned privatisation of British Coal, for example, in the Neath constituency, Rhys Jeffries, owner of Crugau Colliery in the Vale of Neath and Rosemary Griffith, owner of Parc Level Colliery, Rhiwfawr, where there have been such practices as regularly providing no itemised payslips, thereby preventing a check on accuracy of pay, tax etc, denying sick and holiday pay, paying less than the contracted rate, sacking men who, in line with their contracts, refused to work over the normal Christmas break, cutting pay and bonuses without notice and refusing to recognise trade unions for bargaining and representative purposes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 73 MPs.
