Our BACM branch was set up on 31 October 2014 when BACM became part of Prospect.
Originally a colliery management union founded by the professional bodies in the industry, BACM's membership diversified and members now work across a number of sectors including energy consultancy, utilities and rail engineering and non-coal mining.
Prospect remains active providing representation for a diversified membership on working conditions, training and safety. BACM continues to take a lead on mining safety and training. Mines managers and engineers retain high levels of personal responsibility for safety in the industry.
