Polmaise was one of the five pits whose threatened closure sparked the 1984-85 national minersstrike. Its miners were out three weeks before, and back to work a week after, the majority of strikers, breaking Polmaises own record, established in 1938, for the longest ever strike in the Scottish coalfield.

Hounded from the pit after the strike, John McCormack continued to work on behalf of its victimised miners. No-one is better qualified than he to tell this story of working-class struggle.
