An Empirical Analysis of Australian Strike Activity: Estimating the Industrial Relations Effect of the First Three Years of the Prices and Incomes Accord
Australian strike activity was relatively low in the 1983(II)-1986(I) period. Part of this experience is attributable to changes in the macroeconomic environment and part to improvements in industrial relations. This paper attempts to determine the role o f each by estimating econometric models for the 1959(III)-1983(I) per iod. Working days lost per unionist decreased because of macroeconomi c conditions, but these variables explain less than half of the actua l decline. This suggests that, for the initial three-y ear period of its institution, the Accord helped deliver a favorable industrial-relations environment, a situation that is not necessarily long lasting.
