The Greta Question. [Newspaper Article] — Newcastle Morning Herald & Miners' Advocate — 26 April 1876
The Greta Question. Is our issue of yesterday it is seen that the vexed question between MR. VICKERY and the miners has at last been settled. We are not amongst those who unadvisedly sound the note of triumph, or sing the song ot victory in too high a key, but, in this case, we consider that the miners residing at Greta, and the Coal Miners' Protective Association deserve the greatest crbdit for the stand they made against the proposed reduction in the price of hew- ing coal. Had the men submitted to the terms. offered by Mr. VICKERY, the &nbsp; probabilities are that before long, other proprietors would have tried to intro- duce the same getting price into their collieries, so that by the miners resisting the proposed reduction at Greta, they, to all intents and purposes, were staving off the evil of reduced wages from being inflicted on the rest of their brethren. It is not necessary, now that matters are settled, to go itito the reasons why Mr. VICKERY was &nbsp; ...
