NETHERLANDS. Werkstakingen en Uitsluitingen in Nederland gedurende 1901, 1902, 1903.

Bijvoegsel van het Tijdschrift van het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek, Al. 2, 1903, 53 pp.; Afl. 3-4, 1903, 28 pp.; Af. 7, 1904, 43 pp.

These three volumes, which are published in the form of supplements to the Review of the Central Bureau of Statistics of the Netherlands, contain the first three annual reports on strikes and lockouts in that country. The information is given in the form of an analysis, with summary tables and a tabular statement showing in detail the important facts concerning each strike and lockout. The report for 1903 contains. comparative tables for the three years.

STRIKES.- There were 115 strikes reported in 1901, 128 in 1902, and 149 in 1903. The number of establishments involved and persons affected were not reported in the case of all of these strikes. Eightyfour of the strikes in 1901 involved 192 establishments, 113 strikes in 1902 involved 394 establishments, and 132 strikes in 1903 involved 327 establishments. Fifty-eight of the strikes in 1901 affected 4,182 employees, 119 strikes in 1902 affected 12,652 employees, and 136 strikes in 1903 affected 33,487 employees.

The following table shows for each of the years 1901, 1902, and 1903 the number of strikes, establishments involved, and employees affected in each group of industries.

During each of the three years the building trades had the largest number of strikes. As regards the number of persons affected, the building trades had the largest number in 1901, the mining industry had the largest number in 1902, and the transportation industry had the largest number in 1903.

The table which follows shows the number of strikes, establishments involved, and persons affected each year, classified by causes. For the year 1901 the strike is taken as the unit. For the years 1902 and 1903, however, the cause is taken as the unit, so that wherever a strike was due to two or more causes the data for such a strike are repeated under each cause. Hence the total number of strikes, establishments involved, and persons affected in 1902 and 1903, as shown in the tables giving causes of strikes, does not agree with the number in the other tabies.

CAUSES OF STRIKES, 1901 TO 1903. (For the year 1901 the strike, and for the years 1902 and 1903 the cause, has been taken as the cait. As a considerable number of strikes in 1902 and 1903 were due to two or more causes, the facts in those cases have been tabulated under each cause; hence the totals for those years do not agree with those in other tables.)

It will be observed that the strikes in each year were mostly due to wage disputes, strikes for the reinstatement of employees being next in importance.

The results of strikes are shown in the following table:

The proportion of strikes which succeeded shows a decrease each year, while the proportion which succeeded partly and which failed shows an increase.

In the table which follows the strikes are shown, by causes and results, for each of the three years, 1901, 1902, and 1903. As in a preceding table, the strike is taken as the unit in 1901 and the cause as the unit in 1902 and 1903:

STRIKES, BY CAUSES AND RESULTS, 1901 TO 1903. (For the year 1901 the strike, and for the years 1902 and 1903 the cause, has been taken as the unit.

As a considerable number of strikes in 1902 and 1903 were due to two or more causes, the facts in those cases have been tabulated under each cause; hence the totals for those years do not agree with those in other tables.)
