Pay Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 27 June 1874
Pay Frlday. SOME time back we pointed out that it was a' seurce of complaint amongst the miners that they are not paid on Friday instead of the Saturday, as at present, and making Saturday' an idle day. The matter has been in constant agitation, at one or other of the collieries ever since that time, but as yet no definite settlement has been come to The paying of the men on Fridays and lay ing idle on Saturdays has been the custom at a large majority of the collieries in Nor thumberland and Durham for a great many years past, and the very fact'of thait system not having been changed, wil, we think, be taken, as prooF positive that both masters and men are satisfied with it. We nader stand that the matter wai noticed at the last conference between the masters and! delegates of the Miners' Union, and that with very little opposition from the former. In fact the only objection -ras that there were too many vessels in harbour waiting for cargoes, to allow of an idle day once a fortnigh...
