THE WORLD'S LONGEST STRIKE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's longest strike?

1991 was a bad year to begin a strike in as we found two examples for the world's longest strike, each lasting 13 years.

That year 600 members of the Teamsters Local 601 union went on strike at the Diamond of California plant in September 1991 over a pay dispute.

After 13 years the strike was resolved and although most of the workers had new jobs, they had 10 days to decide if they would return back to work and a shiny new five year contract.

That same year, 1991, miners in Fiji went on strike over low pay and unsafe working conditions.

In 1995 the strike was ruled void and the workers were ordered back to work but about 370 of them remained on strike.

Finally, after 13 years Fiji's High Court upheld the previous ruling and the striking miners were fired although they still consider themselves on strike to this very day.
