The following table shows, by industries, the number of strikes, establishments affected, strikers and other employees thrown out of work, etc., during the year 1906 :

STRIKES, ESTABLISHMENTS AFFECTED, STRIKERS, AND OTHER EMPLOYEES

THROWN OUT OF WORK, BY INDUSTRIES, 1906.

[blocks in formation]

The building trades had the largest number of strikes, 184, in 1906, while the largest number of strikers, 38,705, was in the mining and metallurgical group of industries. Next in importance with regard to the number of strikers involved was the textile industry, with 28,970 persons. Of all the strikers during the year, 44 per cent were engaged in these two groups of industries.

The following table shows the causes of the strikes for 1906, by industries:

STRIKES, BY INDUSTRIES AND CAUSES, 1906. [Strikes due to two or more causes have been tabulated under cach cause; hence the

industry totals for this table, if computed, would not agree with those for the preceding table. ]

As in previous years, the most frequent causes of strikes were the demands for increased wages and for reduction of hours. The demand for increased wages alone or in conjunction with other demands figured in 694 strikes, and that for reduction of hours in 298 strikes.

The following table shows the number of strikes and of strikers in each group of industries in 1906, by results:

Of the total number of strikes in 1906, 22.2 per cent succeeded, 47.4 per cent succeeded partly, and 30.4 per cent failed. Of the total number of strikers, 12 per cent were engaged in strikes which succeeded, 66.4 per cent in strikes which succeeded partly, and 21.6 per cent in strikes which failed.

The following table shows the number of strikes and strikers in 1906, according to duration and results:

STRIKES DURING THIRTEEN YEARS.—The summaries for the years 1894 to 1906 were compiled partly from the report for 1906 and partly from previous reports. The following table shows the number of strikes and strikers, establishments affected, and working days lost in Austria for the period during which the Ministry of Commerce has published reports on strikes:

The number of strikes and the number of strikers for each year of the thirteen-year period are shown, by industries, in the following table:

The causes of strikes for each year of the period are shown in the following table, the cause and not the strike being made the unit:

[Strikes due to two or more causes have been tabulated under each cause ; hence the yearly

totals for this table, if computed, would not agree with those for the preceding tables.]

LOCKOUTS.—There were 50 lockouts reported in 1906. One was due to the refusal of employees to work overtime; 1 to the arbitrary reduction of hours by employees; 1 to the refusal of employees to comply with the rules of the establishment; 2 to cessation of work by employees without the consent of employers; 2 boycotts by employees against other establishments; 2 against unionism; 2 to anticipate threatened strikes; 2 on account of lockouts existing in other establishments; 8 to the demands of employees for increase of wages: 13 to prevent the spreading of existing strikes; and 16 were due to employees taking a holiday without obtaining permission of the employers.

The following table shows the number of lockouts, establishments affected, and employees locked out for each year of the period, 1895

to 1906: 10
