Strikes are more common in countries with majoritarian electoral systems

Abstract [en]

Strikes are more common in those OECD countries where the legislature is elected in single member districts (SMD) than in those where it is elected by proportional representation (PR). Furthermore, more working days are lost due to industrial conflict in countries with SMD. I suggest a politico-economic explanation for these rarely noticed empirical regularities. Further empirical testing -- including controls drawn from previous strike research -- reveals that they hold up in a variety of econometric specifications.
