resolution procedure for the conflicts of inter ests/collective la bour conflicts even from the
first acts that regula ted this d omain, being foreseen as a manda tory pha se within the
process of solving this type of conflicts. The subject of conciliation was a pproached before
within the doctrine, from this jur idical institution development point of view, the used
resear ch methods being the observation a nd the comparative a nalysis. The legisla tor
ada pted the pr ocedure for the resol ution of conflicts of interests/ collective labour conflicts
in accorda nce with th e soci al and economic development of the labour r elations and
identified other means of r esolution, such as the mediation, the a rbitrage or the strike,
when the conciliation didn’t lead to the end of the conflict. The present paper aims is to
realize an a ssessment over the historica l development of the labour conflicts conciliation
and to draw up a study on the sta tistical data concerning these conflicts. The study may be
used within the research activity, its con tribution being set u p by the updated p resentation
of the statistical da ta and on the legislation within the field of labour conflicts conciliation.
