LOST DAYS.

THE amount of working days lost to strikes last year was the lowest in 30 years.

More than 20,000 working days were lost to industrial action in 2002, according to the Labour Court's annual report.

The report said there were 93,000 fewer lost days than in 2001, a decrease of 77 per cent.

The Labour Court revealed it dealt with 940 disputes in 2002, an increase of six per cent on the previous year's figures.

The court's annual report showed the number of equality-related cases rose significantly during the year.

Several people claimed they had been sacked for becoming pregnant.
