    Thomas and others v National Union of Mineworkers (South Wales Area) and others [1985] IRLR 136 HC (0 other reports)

In what was perhaps the most significant of all the cases arising out of the miners' dispute, Thomas & others v National Union of Mineworkers (South Wales Area) & others, the High Court grants injunctions restraining picketing of colliery gates in numbers greater than six.

This case concerns another challenge to the legality of the conduct of the union during the recent miners' strike - this time by a group of miners from South Wales.
