Preface

This bulletin, continuing an annual feature o f the Bureau o f Labor
Statistics in the field o f industrial relations since 1941, presents a de­
tailed statistical analysis o f work stoppages in 1969. The data pro­
vided in earlier bulletins has been expanded by the addition o f three
tables: work stoppages by major issue and number o f workers
involved, 1969 (table A-9); by number o f workers involved and dura­
tion, 1969 (table A-19); and a historical record by State, 1927-69
(appendix B table).
Preliminary monthly estimates o f the level o f strike (or lockout)
activity for the United States as a whole are issued about 30 days
after the end o f the month o f reference, and are available on request.
Preliminary estimates for the entire year are available at the year’s
end; selected final tabulations are issued in the early summer o f the
following year.
The methods used to prepare work stoppage statistics are de­
scribed in appendix B.
The Bureau wishes to acknowledge the cooperation o f employers
and employer associations, labor unions, the Federal Mediation and
Conciliation Service, and various State agencies which furnished infor­
mation for this program.
This bulletin was prepared in the Division o f Industrial Relations
by James T. Hall, Jr. under the supervision o f Albert A . Belman. The
analysis o f the individual work stoppages was prepared by William F.
Aden, Alroy E. Derr, and Evelyn L. Traylor.

Analysis of Work Stoppages, 1969
/
the renegotiations o f contracts. Slightly more than
one-third o f the stoppages arose during the term of
agreements and did not involve negotiations o f new
contract terms. Strikes over economic issues ac­
counted for two-thirds o f the idleness, and onesixth were attributable to union organization and
security matters.
For the fourth consecutive year, one-half o f all
stoppages involved 100 workers or more: In earlier
years, particularly 1954-65, smaller stoppages were
dominant. Although the number o f strikes involv­
ing 1,000 workers or more increased to 4 12 from
392 in 1968, the number o f workers directly affected
declined. Idleness attributable to large stoppages
continued to account for more than half o f the
time lost, 69 percent, or a smaller percentage of
total time lost than in 1967 and 1968.
In manufacturing, 47 percent o f the workers were
involved in strikes, and the resulting idleness remained
at the 1968 level. Idleness occurring from stoppages
in nonmanufacturing decreased 25 percent; the highest
levels, 104 million man-day$, were in contract con­
struction, followed by transportation, communications,
and utilities which had 4 million man-days.

Summary
The 42.9 million man-days o f idleness resulting
from work stoppages in 1969 was 13 percent lower
than the 1968 level, but was higher than any other
year since 1959. As a percent o f estimated total
working time, idleness decreased to 0.24 percent,
compared with 0.28 percent in 1968. The 5,700
recorded strikes1 reached the highest annual level
since World War II. However, the 2.5 million
workers involved declined slightly from the number
in 1968; average duration, at 22.5 calendar days,
also was lower than the 24.5 days recorded in
1968.
Fewer major stoppages— those involving 10,000
workers or more— with a smaller number o f work­
ers and man-days o f idleness occurred in 1969 than
in 1968. Slightly more than one-fourth o f the
workers who struck and two-fifths o f the year’s
idleness resulted from the 25 major stoppages that
began during the year. Seven o f the major strikes
were in effect in May when monthly idleness
reached its peak.
Four o f these major stoppages were in con­
struction: In Kansas City, the industry was closed
119 days by 37,000 workers; a St. Louis dispute
involving 20,000 workers required 84 days to nego­
tiate a settlement; construction in the Boston area
was halted for 43 days when 15,000 workers stayed
away from work; and in the Galveston—Houston
area, 15,000 workers withheld their services for 79
days. The remaining three major stoppages involved
12,000 Los Angeles retail trade workers in a 20-day
stoppage; 18,000 Chicago school teachers in a 4-day
stoppage, and 28,000 General Motors workers in an
87-day stoppage.

Trends in work stoppages
Annual. The following developments character­
ized the economy in 1969. Consumer prices rose
at the fastest pace since the Korean War. Unem­
ployment, however, remained about as low as it
had been in 1968, which in turn, recorded the low­
est annual level since Korea. Civilian labor force
growth, which averaged over 1.9 million, was well
above the annual growth o f 1968. Negotiated wage
and benefit increases— by any measure— increased
substantially over the year. Nevertheless, real
spendable earnings were virtually unchanged from a
year ago.
Against this background, the number o f work
stoppages, 5,700 in 1969, increased for the sixth

No stoppages, beginning or threatened in 1969,
were considered a sufficiently serious threat to na­
tional health or safety to warrant the use o f the
national emergency provisions o f the Taft-Hartley
Act; however, high level mediation was necessary to
avert a nationwide stoppage in the railroad industry.
Almost one-half o f all strikes and nearly sixsevenths o f the idleness in the year occurred during

ber o f workers involved decreased each m onth until
O ctober, and then declined again for the remaining
2 months o f the year. December 1969 was well
above December 1968. The primary reason for the
lower number o f workers involved in the last half
o f the year was the decline in the number o f large
stoppages (1,000 workers or m ore). As the year
ended, only six large strikes were in effect.

These stoppages, which involved

at least six workers and continued for a full w ork­
day or shift, increased 13 percent over 1968, 24
percent over 1967, and reached the highest annual
rate o f increase o f the preceding 6 years.
The
number o f work stoppages attained the highest an­
nual level since the series was established, and was
well above the previous peak in 1952 (table A -l).
As an offset, the number o f workers involved in
strikes in 1969 declined to 2.5 million, or 6 per­
cent, from 1968. Although the number o f workers
on strike was at the level o f the immediate post-

Unions affiliated with the AFL-CIO were in­
volved in 66 percent o f the stoppages beginning in
1969 compared with 74 percent in 1968, and were
responsible for a lower proportion o f idleness (table
A -3). In 1968, the AFL-CIO representation o f
union workers declined to 77 percent compared
with 85 percent in 1966 primarily because o f the
disaffiliation o f the United A uto Workers. The
AFL-CIO continues to represent 67 percent o f the
members o f national unions. National unaffiliated
unions were involved in 27 percent o f the strikes
but proportions o f members w ho struck and mandays o f idleness were lower. Between 1968 and
1969, strikes b y professional employee associations
increased almost 200 percent.

on strike caused 4.7 million man-days o f inactivity.
These levels o f idleness were well below those in
1968, but were the second highest since 1952.
During the m onth, 29 percent o f the workers and
36 percent o f the idleness resulted from seven major
stoppages (tables A-4 and A -5), including four in
construction, one each in the automobile and retail
fo o d industries, and a teacher’s dispute in the
Chicago public schools. Idleness declined over the
remainder o f the year, except for the upturn char­
acteristic o f O ctober. At 46 percent o f the May
level, idleness in September was at the low point
for the year. Excluding 1969, over the past decade

nonmanufacturing idleness remained considerably
higher than the levels o f each year from 1960
through 1967. Nonmanufacturing stoppages averaged
28 days or almost 1 day shorter than the 28.8 days
in manufacturing. Both sectors increased in the num­
ber o f stoppages; nonmanufacturing rose 21 percent.

the highest level o f any industry during the year,

E conom ic demands caused more than one-half o f
the strikes in 1969, and more than two-thirds o f the
idleness (table A -8). Eighteen o f the 25 major stop­
pages in 1969, and 238 o f the 412 strikes involving
1,000 workers or more occurred because the parties
were unable to agree on wage increases and related
econom ic issues. Despite increasing prices in the past
several years, the demand for an escalator clause was
a dominant factor in only 26 o f the 5,700 stoppages.

government employees continued to rise as it has
almost constantly in the past decade. The 411
strikes were 157 higher than the number in 1968;

resulted from issues involving union organization and
union security. These disputes tended to be small,

average; about one-fifth extended beyond 2 months.
One o f these in which econom ic matters were also o f

In Missouri, three major strikes were re­

A significantly smaller proportion o f workers
were involved in longer stoppages; in 1969, 30 per­

Metropolitan areas. The Kansas City, Kans.—M o.
area sustained 2.7 million man-days o f idleness or
2.09 percent o f estimated total working time, the
highest idleness level o f any metropolitan area in
St. Louis, M o.—111., which was second in

the absolute level o f idleness, experienced an 84-day
strike in construction and sustained 2.4 million
man-days o f idleness or 1.01 percent o f estimated

and had 1.8 million man-days idle; 0.15 percent o f
estimated total working time. Boston, Chicago, Los
Angeles—Long Beach, and Philadelphia each had
more than 1 million man-days o f idleness in 1969.
New Y ork, which had 323 strikes, again ranked
first in the incidence o f stoppages. Philadelphia,
which had dropped to fourth place last year, now
ranked second in 9 out o f the last 10 years as a
result o f 194 stoppages. Chicago, which had 172
strikes, was third; and five other areas, Pittsburgh,

primary metal industries (0.48 percent), and elec­

Duration
Historically, most strikes are o f brief duration.
This year was no exception but stoppages were set­
tled earlier than in 1968. A bout two-fifths o f the

Slightly more than one-fourth o f the workers in­
volved and over one-third o f the idleness over gen­

disputes ending in the year lasted less than a week
and three-fifths were settled in 2 weeks or less. As
a result, idleness during the year was below the
1968 level. Mean duration decreased to 22.5 mandays, 2 days less than the 24.5 for 1968 and more

o f the prolonged disputes occurred during attempts
to negotiate an initial contract (table A -18).
In manufacturing, idleness attributable to the trans­
portation equipment industry increased 51 percent.
Three major strikes in this industry accounted for 27
percent o f the idleness and 21 percent o f the workers
involved. The petroleum refining and related products
industry recorded 131 days o f idleness, the highest
average duration o f all industries. A major strike o f
158 days, in this industry increased idleness almost
17 fold to 1,035,000 man-days, the highest recorded
idleness level for the petroleum refining and related
products industry. Other manufacturing industries
sustaining idleness levels above 0.47 percent o f esti­
mated total working time were machinery, except
electrical (0.62 percent), transportation equipment
(0.87 percent), ordnance and accessories (0.57 per­

eral wage changes were attributed to construction.
Electrical machinery, equipment, and supplies ac­
counted for more than one-half the idleness in
union organization and security disputes (table

man-days idle per worker, and number o f prolonged
strikes, 1954-69

o f all strikes.

These disputes accounted for 79 per­

cent o f the idleness incurred during 1969.
Slightly more than four-fifths o f the stoppages in
which mediation was required occurred during rene­
gotiations. The 1,920 stoppages in which Federal
mediators attempted to assist the parties accounted
for 69 percent o f all renegotiation disputes that ended
during the year. Mediation was used in slightly more
than 45 percent o f the strikes resulting from attempts
to establish collective bargaining.

Settlement
Almost seven-eighths o f the stoppages that ended
in 1969 were terminated by a settlement or by an
agreement for a procedure to resolve the issues re­
maining in the dispute (table A -21). Fourteen percent
ended without a formal agreement and employers
resumed operations either with new employees or with
returning strikers. Thirteen percent o f all workers
involved in stoppages were in this group.
Settlements were reached in 76 percent o f those
stoppages occurring during attempts to establish a col­
lective bargaining relationship. On the other hand,
settlements were concluded in 96 percent o f the stop­
pages occurring during the renegotiation o f a contract
and 76 percent o f the stoppages during the term o f the
agreement.

Procedures for handling unsettled issues
In some instances, stoppages were terminated b y an
agreement to resolve unsettled issues after work had
been resumed. Information was available for 638
strikes in 1969 (table A-22). In 13 percent o f the
cases, the parties agreed to submit all unresolved issues
to final and binding arbitration: 25 percent were to
be settled by direct negotiations. In 16 percent o f the
disputes, the issues were submitted to government
agencies.

A -ll).
More than one-fourth the idleness that o c ­
curred during the renegotiation or reopening o f an
agreement (table A -12) was in construction.

Stoppages occurring during the term o f the agree­
ment accounted for 71 percent o f all those submitted
to arbitration and 70 percent o f the referrals to
government agencies. Only 25 percent o f the referrals
to government agencies were cases involving the
negotiation o f the initial contract.

Mediation
A bout 48 percent o f the stoppages ending in

Interunion (or intraunion) matters accounted for
almost three-fifths o f the issues remaining, as table 4
shows.

1969 used the services o f mediators (table A-20).
Because the 57 percent o f workers involved was
greater than the 48 percent o f stoppages in which
mediators were used, apparently mediators participated

2
Two agencies, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation
Service and the National Mediation Board, conduct most of
the mediation on the Federal level. Occasionally officials of
the Department of Labor or other persons designated by the
President are directly involved in mediation. Several States also
have Mediation agencies.

in negotiations that involved large numbers o f work­
ers.

Federal mediators2 participated in 83 percent

o f the disputes employing mediation, or 40 percent

Scope, Definition, and Methods

Work stoppage statistics

Old series

It is the purpose o f this statistical series to report
all work stoppages in the United States that involve
six workers or more and last the equivalent o f a full
day or shift or longer.
Definitions
Strike or lockout. A strike is defined as a tempo­
rary stoppage o f work by a group o f employees (not
necessarily members o f a union) to express a grievance
or enforce a demand. A lockout is a temporary with­
holding or denial o f employment during a labor dis­
pute to enforce terms o f employment upon a group
o f employees. Because o f the complexity o f most
labor-management disputes, the Bureau makes no at­
tempt to distinguish between strikes and lockouts in
its statistics; both types are included in the term
“ work stoppage” and are used interchangeably.
Workers and idleness. The figures on the number
o f “ workers involved” and “ man-days idle” include all
workers made idle for one shift or longer in estab­
lishments directly involved in a stoppage. They do
not account for secondary idleness— that is, the ef­
fects o f a stoppage on other establishments or indus­
tries whose employees may be made idle as a result
o f material or service shortages.
The total number o f workers involved in strikes in
a given year may include double counting o f individ­
ual workers if they were involved in more than one
stoppage during that year. (Thus, in 1949, 365,000
to 400,000 coal miners struck on three different oc­
casions; they accounted for 1.15 million o f the year’s
total o f 3.03 million workers.)
In some prolonged stoppages, the total man-days
o f idleness are estimated if the number o f workers idle
each day is not known. Significant changes in the
number o f workers idle are secured from the parties
for use in computing man-days o f idleness.
The relative measures. In computing the number o f
workers involved in strikes as a percent o f total em­
ployment and idleness as a percent o f total working
time, the following employment figures have been
used:




59

From 1927 to 1950, all employed workers were in­
cluded in the base, except those in occupations and
professions in which little, if any, union organization
existed or in which stoppages rarely, if ever, occurred.
In most industries, all wage and salary workers were
included in total employment except those in execu­
tive, managerial, or high supervisory positions, or those
performing professional work the nature o f which
made union organization or group action unlikely.
This measure o f employment also excluded all selfemployed persons; domestic workers; workers on farms
employing fewer than six persons; all Federal and
State Government employees; and officials, both
elected and appointed, in local governments.
From 1951 to 1966, the Bureau’s estimates of
total employment in nonagricultural establishments,
exclusive o f government, were used as a base. Mandays o f idleness computed on the basis o f nonagri­
cultural employment (exclusive o f government) usually
differed by less than one-tenth o f a percentage point
from that obtained by the former method, while the
percentage o f workers idle (compared with total em­
ployment) differs by about 0.5 o f a point. For ex­
ample, the percentage o f workers idle during 1950
computed on the base used for the earlier years was
6.9, and the percent o f man-days o f idleness was 0.44,
compared with 6.3 and 0.40, respectively, computed
on the new base.

New series2
Beginning with 1967, two estimates o f employment
have been used— one based on the wage and salary
workers in the civilian work force, and the other on
those in the private nonfarm sector. The new private
nonfarm series closely approximates the former BLS

o f Methods for Surveys and Studies, B L S Bulletin 1 4 5 8 (1 9 6 6 ),

series which, as noted, excluded government and agri­
cultural workers from employment totals, but ac­
counted for time lost by such workers while on strike.
In recent years, the old method has resulted in an
increasingly distorted measure o f the severity o f
strikes; with the likely growth o f strike activity among
the two groups, it may distort the measure even more
in the future. The new “ total economy” measure o f
strike idleness now includes government and agri­
cultural workers in its employment count as well as in
the computation o f idleness ratios. On the other
hand, data for the private nonfarm sector excludes
agricultural and government workers from employment
totals, and these groups will also be removed from
strike figures in arriving at a percentage o f working
time lost. To facilitate comparisons over time, the
private nonfarm series has been recalculated for all
years beginning with 1950, while the figure for the
total economy has been carried back to 1939. The
differences resulting from the use o f the new methods
are illustrated in table 1; the various components o f
each series and the methods o f computation are set
forth in the tabulation.

“ Estimated working time” is computed by multi­
plying the average employment for the year by the
number o f days typically worked by most employed
workers during that year. In these computations,
Saturdays (when customarily not worked), Sundays,
and established holidays as provided in most union
contracts are excluded.3
Duration.
Although only workdays are used in
computing total man-days o f idleness, duration is
expressed in calendar days, including nonworkdays.
State Data. Stoppages occurring in more than one
State are listed separately in each State affected. The
workers and man-days o f idleness are allocated among
each o f the affected States.4 The procedures outlined




on the preceding page also have been used in preparing
estimates o f idleness by State.
M etropolitan area data. Information is tabulated
separately for the areas that currently comprise the list
o f standard metropolitan statistical areas issued by the
Bureau o f the Budget in addition to a few com­
munities historically included in the strike series before
the current list o f standard metropolitan areas was
compiled. The counties or other political districts
include in each SMSA to which the strike statistics
apply are those established by the Bureau o f the
Budget. Information is published only for those areas
in which at least five stoppages were recorded during
the year.
Some metropolitan areas include counties in more
than one State, and, hence, statistics for an area may
occasionally equal or exceed the total for the State in
which the major city is located. Stoppages in the
mining and logging industries are excluded from metro­
politan area data, but are reported by industry and
State.
Unions involved. For this purpose, the union is the
organization whose contract was involved or which has

taken active leadership in the stoppage. Disputes in­
volving more than one union are classified as juris­
dictional or rival union disputes or as involving co­
operating unions. If unorganized workers strike, a
separate classification is used. However, the tabula­
tions o f “ workers involved” include all who are made
idle for one shift or longer in establishments directly

unions and nonunion w orkers.. For publication pur­
poses, union information is presented by major af­
filiation o f the union, i.e., AFL-CIO, or nonaffiliation
such as “ independent,” “ single firm ” or “ no union.”
Sources o f information
Occurrence o f strikes. Information on the actual or
probable existence o f work stoppages is collected from
a number o f sources. Clippings on labor disputes are
obtained from a comprehensive coverage o f daily and
weekly newspapers throughout the country. Infor­
mation also is received regularly from the Federal
Mediation and Conciliation Service. Other sources of
information include State boards o f mediation and
arbitration; research divisions o f State labor depart­
ments; local offices o f State employment security
agencies, channeled through the Manpower Administra­
tion o f the U.S. Department o f Labor; and trade and
union journals. Some employer associations, compan­
ies, and unions also furnish the Bureau with work
stoppage information on a voluntary cooperative basis,
either as stoppages occur or periodically.
Respondents to questionnaire. A questionnaire is
mailed to each of the parties reported as involved in
work stoppages to obtain information on the num­
ber o f workers involved, duration, major issues, loca­
tion, method o f settlement, and other pertinent

involving six workers or more and lasting a full shift
or more, information is undoubtedly missing on some
strikes involving small numbers o f workers. Presumably,
these missing strikes do not substantially affect the
number o f workers and man-days o f idleness reported.
To improve the completeness o f the count o f stop­
pages, the Bureau has constantly sought to develop
new sources o f information on the probable existence
o f stoppages. Over the years, these sources have prob­
ably increased the number o f strikes recorded, but
have had little effect on the number o f workers or
total idleness.
Beginning in mid-1950, local offices o f State em­
ployment security agenices would report5 monthly on
work stoppages coming to their attention. It is esti­
mated that this additional source increased the number
o f strikes reported in 1950 about 5 percent, and in
1951 and 1952, approximately 10 percent. Because
most o f these stoppages were small, they increased the
number o f workers involved and man-days o f idleness
less than 2 percent in 1950 and less than 3 percent in
1951 and 1952. In 1966, State employment security
agencies were the sole source o f information for 17
percent o f the strikes recorded.
As new local agencies having knowledge o f the
existence o f work stoppages are established or
changes are made in local collection methods, every
effort is made by the Bureau to establish cooperative
arrangements.

Lim itations o f data. Although the Bureau seeks to
obtain complete coverage, i.e., a “ census” o f all strikes
