United Kingdom - Days lost to strike action fell by 74 % in 2015, official figures reveal - December 31, 2015

Commenting on figures published in December by the Office for National Statistics, which show that the number of days lost through strike action fell by 74 % between October 2014 and October 2015, the TUC stated that the figures highlight once again the flimsiness of the government’s case for pushing through its Trade Union Bill. Days lost to strike action are just a tiny fraction of what they were in the 1980s. And they account for a miniscule 0.0035% of all working days between October 2014 and October 2015.
