To all workers in all trades: additional guarantees. [handbill]

London: H.M. Stationery Office, [1926]. 7.5x10 inch sheet printed one side, small browned spot, otherwise very good with faint fold crease.

The General Strike, led by the Trades Union Congress, was an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to prevent wage reductions and other damages to the livelihoods of coal miners. This handbill promises that the king will ensure that "Every man who does his duty by the Country and remains at work or returns to work during the present crisis will be protected by the State from loss of Trade Union benefits, superannuation allowances or pensions."
