Strike Support

Australian Workers Film Guide


This micro film is about Queensland coal miner strike organisation and support, including the women’s auxiliary and the collection and distribution of food to miners and their families. There is discussion of levies on miners in other districts, which assisted the miners on strike. The union also halted credit payments during strikes, such as mortgages payments.
