Source dataset: Labour market statistics time series (LMS)
3 April 2020
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic presents a significant challenge to the UK. We are working to ensure that the UK has the vital information needed to respond to the impact of this pandemic on our economy and society.
The effects of the pandemic on ONS capacity and capability during this period means we have reviewed the existing labour market releases. As a result data collection and publication of labour disputes will cease for the foreseeable future.
This action will protect the delivery and quality of our remaining outputs as well as ensuring we can respond to new demands as a direct result of COVID-19. More details about the impact on labour market outputs can be found in our statement.
