An Expressive Voting Theory of Strikes
AbstractUnion members may vote for a strike even if they do not expect to thereby increase their wages. For under majority voting any one member's vote for a strike is unlikely to be decisive. A union member who obtains a noninfinitesimal emotional benefit from the act of voting for a strike may therefore vote in its favor. This hypothesis can explain the existence of strikes and the conditions that make strikes especially likely. Copyright 1992 by Oxford University Press.
