Strikes and Political Activism of Trade Unions: Theory and Application to Bangladesh

Jean-Paul Azam and Claire Salmon ()

Public Choice, 2004, vol. 119, issue 3_4, 311-334

Abstract: The behavior of Bangladeshi trade unions is characterized by political activism and momentous strikes, called hartals there, have played a crucial part in most political changes in this country. We offer a theoretical framework for discussing this fact, and we test empirically its main prediction by bringing out the political cycle that characterizes the occurrence of strikes in Bangladesh.
