This thesis is a piece of empirical research concerned with the study of union-management relationship in conflict situation in the 'X' Company in Southern Ontario, Canada. The analysis centres on the causes or accumulation of causes of friction and the processes which led to the aggressive conflict in the plant. It also concerns the roles played by the participants throughout the conflict situation. The thesis illustrates how the draftsmen in a strike were transformed by it ,and how the meaning and the purpose of unionism to the strikers is changed by, indeed grew out of, the struggle in which they were engaged with their employers. The study is also concerned with the adjustment of social relationships in the plant after the strike. All proper names used in this study are pseudonyms.
