ABSTRACT
The article focuses on patterns of industrial conflict. Although patterns of industrial conflict differ from place to place, a common chain of developments is apparent in the majority of the countries. Labor unions have been growing in size and strength. An increasing percentage of the employed labor force has been drawn into strikes. Over the years such strikes have been growing shorter. Consequently, despite higher rates of participation, the loss of working time per wage and salary earner has been diminishing. The shortening of the average length of strikes indicates that a process of accommodation has taken place between the practice of industrial conflict on the one hand, and the requirement that intolerable interruption of output be avoided, on the other. The reasons for these trends and for differences in strike activity between one country and another has been analyzed. It was found that the proportion of the labor force drawn into strikes has risen. The average duration of strikes has fallen markedly. Therefore the loss of working time per wage and salary earner, and per union member, has declined.
