Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This study records the extent of unionization and the characteristics of strikes and labor disturbances in France from 1830 to 1960. Individual strikes and labor disturbances are separated by date, region (department), industry, cause, duration, outcome, and total involvement. The extent of unionization is recorded by department with numbers of employer organizations, worker organizations, mixed organizations containing both groups, and agricultural unions. Additional indicators list total membership for these categories, including the differentiation of female membership within union totals.
