Politics, wealth, education-these constants affect human society. They intertwine in the economy. Life connects all three in labour behaviour. This is how workers act in dealing with employers, the government that policies society for all, and the outer society, often history’s laboratory. Laboring people influence events severally, to wit, in production, distribution, transportation, reproduction, exchange, destruction, and so on (Uzoechi 1985). These activities rarely make the headlines but angry workers on the move-called a strike-create news; make heroes; and attract the bigstick. Why is the strike an earth-shaker, if at all? This and many implied questions will form this paper. It defines strike; justifies it; explains causes, traces the effects of indigenous strikes; and concludes after tabling some findings. At any rate, a working thesis is that strikes have impacted on Nigerians from pre-colonials times to post-independence.
