This paper provides a seminal analysis of strike activity for an African country in investigating the determinants of strike durations in Ghana over the period 19802004. The empirical approach uses a set of well-known parametric accelerated failure time strike duration models. There is a broad consensus among the different empirical models about the role exerted on average strike duration by strike size, the rate of inflation, enterprise ownership, and political governance. However, evidence on the relationship between strike durations and business cycle activity in Ghana is less clear-cut.
