The article presents information on the strike held by air traffic controllers in the U.S. in August 1981. Unlike the demonstrations made by other public employees, the air traffic controller strike had a somewhat negative public reaction. Though the government ultimately won a month later, the message of the strike had been spread. The strike began after the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization was instituted. The strike lasted as long as it did because of several miscalculations made by both sides.
