Description

The project assembles a unique regional panel-dataset on strikes and lockouts (work stoppages) between 1859 and 1938. The regional dimension allows to use communities as mini-laboratories for studying how conflict and compromises come about at the local level. By holding factors constant at the regional and industry level,it is possible to analyze the relative importance of local economic conditions, union strategies and political influence as they evolve over time.
