Metcalf, David and Milner, S. (1991) A century of UK strike activity: an alternative perspective. CEPDP, 22. Centre for Economic Performance, London, UK.Full text not available from this repository.
New series of strike activity over the last century are presented. Most strikers are union members. Therefore time series running from 1893 to 1989 for strike frequency, workers involved and days lost have been calculated on a per union members basis as well as on the traditional per employment basis. New information on average strike duration is also shown. The primary aim is to present the data but some highlights of the series are also noted.
