The empirical relations between employers' striker replacement strategies and strike duration
This analysis of General Accounting Office survey data on strikes in 1985 and 1989 shows that employers' permanent replacement of striking workers was associated with longer strikes than would otherwise have occurred. Furthermore, the authors find that simply announcing the intent to replace strikers was also associated with longer strikes. Finally, when employers permanently replaced strikers, the probability of settlement fell approximately 30%. These findings are consistent with models focusing on the joint costs of a strike and on private information in the bargaining process. (Abstract courtesy JSTOR.)
