There were 239 industrial disputes in the manufacturing industry in calendar year 2000. These disputes involved 62,000 employees and resulted in the loss of over 146,000 working days (table 19.12). Compared with 1999, this represented a rise of almost 15% in the number of disputes. This is the third successive year that the number of industrial disputes in the manufacturing industry has risen. However, the number of manufacturing employees involved in industrial disputes in 2000 fell markedly (by 46%) from the number in 1999, and this was also reflected by a fall (of 21%) in the number of working days lost.
