Press Association

Pay and pensions were the main cause of working days lost to industrial disputes in 2011 and 2012, new research stated.

More than nine out of 10 days lost over the two years were because of pay issues, compared to one in four in 2009/10. The lowest rate of working days lost was in Northern Ireland, at one day lost per 1,000 workers.
