dc.description.abstract In this paper we will examine the situation in which strikes by Black workers take place and their relationship to trade union organisation. Hopefully we will be able to tease out the strands of relationship between the essential components: between; prices, strikes and labour organisation. We should attempt to answer the following questions: are strikes basically the result of increases in the prices of essential commodities (particularly food); can strikes by African workers be seen as defensive action to re-establish real wages; how far does relative deprivation of Black workers result in trade union organisation and what are the optimum conditions for the formation and growth of African trade unions. en_US
