Three Day Week - leaflet, 1973

Phase 3 of the Conservative Government's incomes policy, which included limiting pay raises to 7%, was launched in November 1973. On 12 November, the National Union of Mineworkers started a national overtime ban and on the following day, the Government declared a State of Emergency. A month later, the Government announced that three day working would start on 1 January 1974. Working hours were cut to conserve available fuel stocks for electricity. The Three Day Week officially ended 7 March 1974.

This leaflet was issued by the London Federation of Trades Councils and the London Co-op Political Committee.
