Queenslanders are 'downing tool's and walking off the job at a rapid rate, according to new figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics today.

Since Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk was elected in 2015, Queensland has the highest number of working days lost to industrial disputes.

A staggering 145,000 working days have been wasted because of strike action.

Shadow Industrial Minister Jarrod Bleijie said The ABS report found Queensland was the second worst state in the September quarter, but are leading the way since Labor took office.

"It's no wonder business confidence has flatlined and we have the highest unemployment rate in the nation.

"Since 2015, Queensland has accounted for more than a third of the national working days lost to strike action, an increase of almost 10 per cent under Labor.

"This is a record we don't want, and it continues to put the jobs of Queenslanders at risk.

"You wouldn't expect anything else considering the Palaszczuk Labor Government is owned lock, stock and barrel by the trade union bosses.

"At the same time, it's costing jobs, harming economic productivity and putting future business investment at risk."
