NETHERLANDS.

The statistics of strikes and lockouts in the Netherlands were compiled from annual reports published since 1901 by the Netherlands central bureau of statistics. The strikes and lockouts are considered separately in these reports and are so presented in the present compilation.

The two following tables give a summary of the strikes and lockouts in the Netherlands for each year of the period 1901 to 1905:

a Not including Sundays and holidays in 1901. During the five-year period from 1901 to 1905 there were 603 strikes, 536 of which affected 1,354 establishments and 522 involved 59,410 strikers. The data showing working-days lost are given for the last two years only, and are incomplete. Of the 603 strikes which occurred during the five years, 170, or 28.2 per cent, succeeded; 160, or 26.5 per cent, succeeded partly; 216, or 35.8 per cent, failed; and in the case of 57, or 9.5 per cent, the result remained indefiDuring the same period there were 58 lockouts, of which 25, or 43.1 per cent, succeeded; 16, or 27.6 per cent, succeeded partly; 14, or 24.1 per cent, failed, and in the case of 3, or 5.2 per cent, the result was not reported.

The following table shows, by groups of industries and by years, the number and results of strikes and the number of establishments and strikers involved:

Of the 20 groups of industries enumerated above, that of building trades had the largest number of strikes and establishments affected. The industry group of transportation had the largest number of strikers involved, or more than one-half of the entire number. Next in importance with regard to the number of strikers involved were the groups of building trades and mining. These three groups of industries furnished 77.4 per cent of all the strikers in the Netherlands during the five-year period.
