Labor unrest is organizing and strike actions undertaken by labor unions, especially where labor disputes become violent or where industrial actions in which members of a workforce obstruct the normal process of business and generate industrial unrest are essayed.

Such a conception of labor action was common in the United States in the nineteenth century,[1] most prominently amongst mining interests in the American West, and remained common in the twentieth century CE amongst totalitarian states, such as the Soviet Union and People's Republic of China.[citation needed]
