These statistics relate to industrial disputes that involved stoppages of work of 10 working days or more at the establishments where stoppages have occurred. (Ten working days is equivalent to the amount of ordinary time worked by ten people in one day.)

From 2001 to 2002, the number of working days lost in Tasmania increased from 1,200 to 3,500, or from 7 to 20 working days lost per thousand employees. This is in contrast to the Australian figures, where working days lost decreased, from 393,100 to 259,000, or from 50 to 32 working days lost per thousand employees.
