Scottish miners at Polmaise Colliery, the last group holding out against the end of Britain's coal strike, went back to work a year to the day after the start of the country's longest nationwide labor stoppage. Polmaise, near Stirling, was one of 20 mines earmarked for shutdown last year. Disclosure of the plan prompted the strike March 12, 1984.
