Union Hut

There were several trade unions represented at Geevor. 

They bartered over pay and working conditions on behalf of the workforce. The building seems originally to have been the Underground Managers' Office (or Mine Foreman's Hut), though its date of construction and that of the conversion to a Union Hut are unknown. During the 1970's this building temporarily housed the mine's first X-Ray Fluorescence analyser, though also continued to function as a Union Hut.
