Spanish Miners Dispute

The National Union of Mineworkers sends a message of solidarity and support to the brave people who stand in opposition to the closure of the mining industry in Spain.


On Friday 22 June 2012 180 miners will march hundreds of miles from the mining regions to Madrid on foot to demand a future for coal.


The NUM fully support the miners march which is backed by their trade unions CCOO and UGT.


Both unions are demanding an urgent meeting of the Monitoring Committee of the Coal Plan, for a true dialogue without conditions, to meet the current needs and future of the Coal Mining and Mining Districts.


Where coal is available and needed it should be mined by the miners of that country.


Coal is both available and needed by Spain and should be mined by her miners.


Industries with employment that produce real wealth will be the solution to the economic madness and should be kept open.  The march in three columns on Madrid will raise the awareness of the need to retain the mining industry in Spain.
