Employee militancy in Britain: 1985-1990
This paper profiles individual strike incidence and militancy in Britain over the period 1985-1990 using data derived from the British Social Attitudes Survey. The approach of the study is to quantify the differential probabilities of strike activity and other forms of militant behaviour of particular groups within the population. Following studies from the USA in highlighting, in particular, the role of demographic and attitudinal influences. The results indicate that demographic influences are, in general, the key correlates of strike incidence and militancy ceteris paribus.
