Abstract: Strike acts as a defensive tool in the hands of employees when they feel exploited by their management.  It empowers the employees to have a say in what is decided for them in an industry.  Strike, generally involves quitting of work by a group of workers for the purpose of influencing their employer or management to protect their common interest in the organization.  When the labour unions or workers collectively cease to work in a particular industry, they are said to be on strike.  A strike usually takes place in response to employees’ unmet grievances. Strike can cause huge losses for the organization.  Strike propensity is different from actual strike.  Strike propensity is the extent to which workers are willing to engage in strike.  It is a strong predictor of actual strike action.  This paper explores the significance and consequence of understanding strike propensity of the employees in workplace and further tries to explore it’s relevance in today’s volatile organizations. 

Keywords: Strike, Strike Propensity, Labour union, Employee grievances.
