Some critics of coalition bargaining have predicted that it will lead to an increase in strike activity. This study tests that claim through an analysis of strike activity in the electrical equipment industry before and after 1966, when coalition bargaining was initiated at General Electric and Westinghouse. The author concludes that strike activity has indeed increased in that industry since 1966 but for reasons other than the introduction of coalition bargaining.
