Branch N465: BACM


Our British Association of Mines and Mineral Management (BAMM) branch was set up on 31 October 2014 when the British Association of Colliery Management (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.

Due to the significant decline in the coal industry and the mini revival of the mining sector, the name change to BAMM was unanimously agreed in 2023.

Prospect remains active providing representation for a diversified membership on working conditions, training and safety. BAMM 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.
