Administrative HistoryThe Industrial Relations Department of the National Coal Board was formed in the later 1950s by fusing the Labour Relations Department and part of the Manpower and Welfare Department, the educational functions of the latter being passed to the Staff Department. The Industrial Relations Department and its predecessors dealt with all aspects of management of the large industrial workforce employed by the NCB, including manpower, welfare, conciliation in trade disputes, wages and conditions of service, insurance, industrial diseases and miners' pensions. In 1952 the NCB inherited a number of welfare functions from the Miners' Welfare Commission, which passed to this department. It was also responsible for pensions and insurance centres.
