Industrial conflict is a ‘‘multifaceted phenomenon’’ which is conceptually defined in broad terms to include such events as grievances, job actions, sabotage, and turnover but actually researched in narrow terms’’ (Feuille & Wheeler, 1981, p. 290). Wheeler (1985, p. 4) offers three types of collective expressions of industrial conflict: union organizing; striking or ‘‘utilizing a strike substitute to resolve an impasse’’; and ‘‘more spontaneous collective actions such as wildcat strikes, overtime bans, working to rule, slowdowns, filing numerous grievances, and sick-outs’’.

In New York state, for example, data from the Public Employment Relations Board shows that there were only 21 strikes from 1990 to 1999 for some 4,000 bargaining units (PERB, 1999).
