This section presents statistics on industrial disputes involving the loss of ten working days or more at the establishments where stoppages occurred. Working days lost refers to working days lost by workers directly or indirectly involved in disputes at those establishments.
Table 6.50 shows that the overall decrease of 181,400 in working days lost between 1999 and 2000 was primarily due to a fall in disputation in Education; Health and community services industries (down 114,000 working days lost), Construction (down 56,300), and Metal products; Machinery and equipment manufacturing (down 36,100).
There were 61 working days lost per thousand employees in 2000, compared to 87 working days lost per thousand employees in 1999 (graph 6.51). This fall was due to large falls in NSW (down 62 working days lost per thousand employees) and Victoria (down 45). Victoria (71 working days lost per thousand employees), Western Australia (68), NSW (64) and Queensland (64) recorded the highest number of working days lost per thousand employees in 2000, while Tasmania (7), the Northern Territory (9) and the ACT (9) recorded the lowest number of working days lost per thousand employees.
