The Effect of Labour Relations Legislation on Strike Incidence
The impact on strike incidence of nine labor relations policy variables representing legislation in eleven Canadian jurisdictions is estimated using logit analysis of 3,347 individual collective agreements. Mandatory strike votes, compulsory dues check-off, and compulsory conciliation boards are associated with significantly lower strike probabilities. Prohibition of replacement workers and employer-initiated strike votes are associated with significantly higher strike probabilities. No significant association was found between strike incidence and the length of cooling-off period following conciliation and negotiated or automatic reopeners. Policy impacts are interpreted in a framework emphasizing the influence of asymmetric information and joint costs on strikes.
