Spain -Miners on strike after serious accident -October 29, 2013

Miners at the Santa Lucia mine, near the town of Pola de Gordon, launched a 48-hour work stoppage as they recalled the horror of a methane gas leak that swiftly killed six coal workers in the troubled industry’s deadliest accident in 18 years. Another five injured workers were taken to hospital and are in a stable condition. The trade union confederations CCOO and UGT urged the National Commission for Mining Safety to investigate urgently and to take measures to prevent further such disasters.
