ABSTRACT
This article investigates the failure of the labor movement in Northern Ireland. In addition to this study, the author includes the previous essay on labor and politics in Ireland between the 1880s and Partition in 1920 in which it reviews the major developments in Belfast, the main center of labor politics. Included in the reviews were as follows: the formation of Belfast Trades Council in 1881; the foundation of the Independent Labour Party in the city in 1893; the election of labor candidates in municipal elections in 1897; the near victory of a labor candidate William Walker in a parliamentary election in 1906; and the major industrial strikes in the city in 1907 and 1914.
