Strikes are one manifestation of industrial conflict. The ILO's International Conference of Labour Statisticians defines strikes as a temporary work stoppage or closure of a workplace resulting from the initiative of one or more groups of workers or employers to enforce or resist demands and express grievances, or to support other workers or employers in their demands or grievances. The most comprehensive indicator of industrial conflicts is the proportion of the hours of work that is lost because of strikes, but this is available only in a few countries. Therefore, the main indicator used here is the ratio between the number of working days lost because of strikes and that of all employees.
