Strife archive'It's this infernal three-cornered duel - the Union, the men, and ourselves.' 1909. South Wales. There is snow on the ground at the Trenartha Tinplate Works, and the furnaces too are cold. The men are on strike, and the community is close to breaking point. Amid this bleak winter, the company's directors have made the journey from London to try and reach a solution and restart production. Fearing their plummeting share price, most board members are keen to reach a compromise, but the Chairman, old John Anthony, is resolute and hard as iron. The men are behind their firebrand leader, Roberts, but the union has withdrawn its support and it is only a matter of time before the men do too.
