The article presents information about various developments and research related to international and comparative industrial relations in OECD countries and in San Diego, California. A working party report has been finalized on policies for life at work, which will be published shortly together with a conceptual framework concerning quality of working life prepared by researchers K. Walker and R. Shore. An analysis of the complementarity of public and collectively bargained measures concerning job security in France, Germany, and the Great Britain by researcher J. Gennard is well advanced as is a secretariat review of labor disputes in member countries covering trends in disputes, services of the state, and emergency disputes. Researcher Adam Gifford is comparing the seasonal and cyclical sensitivity and trend in white and black and other minority unemployment in the United States from May 1963 through May 1975. Similar comparisons are made for Great Britain over the same period. Comparisons between the two countries will reveal similarities and differences between black and colored unemployment relative to white unemployment.
