Thousands of miners ripped coal out of the earth yesterday
for the first time in 112 days, bringing an end to the nation-
wide soft coal strike for most of the industry.
Reports from across the coal fields showed that
operations were beginning to return to normal as United
Mine Workers donned their hardhats, shouldered picks,
boarded heavy equipment and went back to work for the first
pay-day since the strike by 160,000 union members began
But for others it was a different story. Some miners, who
wanted to get back to work and found mine construction
workers picketing, followed the time-honored coal country
tradition of observing picket lines.
1 WAS ON my way up the hollow when the pickets turned
me back," said James Darby, an electrician for the Valley
Camp Coal Co. in West Virginia. Mines also remained closed
in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Meanwhile, negotiations for a new contract for the 10,000
mine construction workers were going on in Washington,
where both sides reported they were closing in on an
agreement. "We are making good progress," an industry
The workers, who build mine shafts and other facilities,
are believed to be seeking a contract similar to the one ap-
proved by the miners.
THE MAJORITY OF the nation's mines were open by the
8 a.m. shift. Eastern Associated Coal Co. saidonly one of its
17 West Virginia mines was shut. Consolidated Coal Co. said
38 of its 51 mines across the country were open. U.S. Steel and
Bethlehem Steel both reported that the morning turnout was
good at the total of 46 mines in three states that they operate.
"We're back to work," a U.S. Steel spokesman said. "It's
been a very smooth operation so far."
DESPITE THE SCATTERED shutdowns, most areas said
they expected some shipments of coal would start heading to
coal-short utilities by the end.of the day. It will take an
estimated two or three weeks, though, before normal produc-
tion and shipping resume.
This could be slowed if the construction workers widen
their picketing efforts.
"They're still out," Joe Angleton, compensation counselor
for UMW District 12 in Illinois, said of the members of his
"As far as I know all the mines in the southern area do
have pickets. Our people are ready to return . . . We heard
they (the construction workers) were going to hold off for one
or two days so men could get their $100 bonuk and clothing
allowance. But that fell through."
