ABSTRACT
This article investigates the relationship between organization size and frequency of strikes among manufacturing organizations that have been classified according to production method. Despite considerable evidence of interrelationships among size, technology and strike frequency, it seems to be a complex relationship. A characteristic of larger variance on certain dimensions of organizational structure in medium-size plants suggested that managers of these plants may be looking for the right values for these dimensions to much larger extent than managers in the seemingly more stable smaller and larger plants.
