Roughyed Questions on Durham Lockout (11) RE: Questions on Durham Lockout 21 Nov 12

I always understood that the owners had demanded a 13.5% pay cut and had locked the miners out until they agreed it. The miners tried to negotiate them down with an offer of only a 10% cut and stuck it out when the offer was refused and the owners insisted on the full amount. I seem to remember reading that they were in fact defeated and had to return to work on the owners terms but can't for the life of me remember where I read it.
