These statistics cover stoppages of work caused by labour disputes connected with terms and conditions of employment between employers and workers, or between workers themselves. Stoppages can be the result of strikes or lockouts depending on whether the worker or the employer is responsible.

The data collection is conducted by the International Labour Office (ILO). These data are not published by Eurostat but can be found on the website of the ILO at: http://ilo.org/ilostat
