Ukrainian employees went on strike only thirteen times. Swedishworkershad 18 strikes andBritish employees went on 144 strikes.
Italian workers who are theleaders of the European labor movement went on 1,339 strikes in 2008. Even if you adjust number of strikes per capita, Ukraine still hadthe lowest number of strikes per capita in Europe.
There are couple thingswhich puzzle me about these data. First,workers in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, and Czech Republic did not go on strike at all because their strike was either cancelled or a conflict was resolved.
