Industrial Disputes (cat. no. 6321.0)
The monthly Industrial Disputes publication (cat. no. 6321.0) released on 18 March 2004, will be the final monthly release in the form of a printed publication. It will be replaced with a quarterly electronic publication Industrial Disputes (cat. no. 6321.0.55.001).
The first edition of the new electronic publication will contain March Quarter 2004 data and is scheduled for release in June 2004. A small number of tables, presenting March quarterly data, will be available free from the ABS web site.
As a result of moving from a monthly to a quarterly series, statistics will become available for more industry groups. In addition, data will become available from the new Cause of Dispute (COD) and Reason Work Resumed (RWR) (formerly method of settlement) classifications. The new COD classification will enable disputes to be classified according to their relationship to a process of workplace/enterprise bargaining.
