Labor relations literature and numerous trade journals are replete with stories of labor slowdowns and sickouts. The consequences of this usually illegal activity are minimal because of the difficulty, if not impossibility, of proving a concerted effort. The authors suggest a means by which "slowdown" activity as a matter of chance can be ruled out. Further research suggestions are offered.
