In the June 2001 quarter, complete strikes accounted for the eight of the nine stoppages. The other stoppage was a partial strike. There were 2,178 employees involved in the nine stoppages, resulting in a loss of 1,399 person-days of work. This is an average loss of 0.6 person days of work per employee involved. There was an estimated $206,000 lost in wages and salaries.

In the March 2001 quarter, there were eight stoppages with 949 employees involved. These resulted in a loss of 6,206 person-days of work and an estimated $934,000 in wages and salaries.

Thirty stoppages ended in the June 2001 year. These involved 4,077 employees with a loss of 9,939 person-days of work and an estimated $1.6 million in wages and salaries. In comparison, 31 stoppages involving 10,452 employees ended in the June 2000 year, resulting in a loss of 21,365 person-days of work and an estimated $4.6 million in wages and salaries.

Eighteen private sector stoppages and 12 public sector stoppages ended in the June 2001 year, compared with 18 private sector and 13 public sector stoppages in the previous year.

In the June 2001 year, 10 work stoppages were recorded in manufacturing and eight in health and community services. In all other industries combined there were 12 stoppages. Work stoppages in manufacturing contributed about 53 per cent of the total estimated $0.8 million loss in wages and salaries during the June 2001 year.
