Industrial unrest hits all-time low

• Industrial unrest in the 1920s and 1970s mean the highest number of
working days were lost in these two decades.

Since the 1970s there has been a dramatic fall in the number of days lost,
figures from the Office for National Statistics show.

At the same time union membership has also fallen, although this is expected
to change as new rights on union recognition come into force.
