The real trouble, however, fuelled by the Callaghan government's public sector pay policy, came in the winter of 1978 9.
THE decade of strikes that was the Seventies as the so called "British disease" reached new heights.
The real crunch came when 2,000 "dirty jobs" workers in Hyndburn joined their union's strike for a minimum wage of 60 per week. School caretakers, binmen, ambulancemen and lollipop men were among those who walked out.
Engineers and teachers staged strikes later in 1979 but Margaret Thatcher's victory in that year's election marked the turning of the tide against the trade unions.
Decade of discontent
Firms throughout Hyndburn were badly hit by the 47 day strike of postmen and counter staff. The workers, then earning 18 for a six day week, were demanding a 15 per cent pay rise.

The situation was only resolved when Labour won both General Elections of 1974, with Arthur Davidson being returned in Accrington.
