The Midland Counties Miners' Federation was a British trade union.
The union was founded in 1886 to represent coal miners in the West Midlands region of England. It initially had seven affiliates: the North Stafford Miners' Association, the Old Hill and Highley District Miners, Enginemen and Surfacemen's Association, the Pelsall District Miners, the Shropshire Miners' Association, the South Staffordshire and East Worcestershire Amalgamated Miners, and the West Bromwich District Miners. It affiliated to the Miners' Federation of Great Britain. The Warwickshire Miners' Association affiliated later.
In 1945, the union became the Midland Area of the National Union of Mineworkers.
