Definition: Labour dispute

Social statistics

Labour dispute only applies to persons who were directly involved in a labour dispute. Other persons who did not work because production in the establishment was impeded by a labour dispute outside the establishment (thus causing a shortage in materials supplies for example)  are "Slack work for technical or economic reasons".
