This paper presents a wage-bargaining model in which strikes occur due to imperfect information. The predictions are tested on a unique Irish firm-level data set which is based on the 25th wage round. The results indicate that firm size affects strike activity in the form of an inverted U. They also indicate that strike activity is inversely related to strike cost.
