In May 1906, a wave of strike activity swept through Habsburg Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the small rural settlement of Zavidovići, workers picketed the sawmill of the forestry and lumber firm Eissler & Ortlieb. At the same time, workers’ representatives went to the local district authorities to ask that the Habsburg administration mediate the dispute. They, however, were not the only ones to reach out to the local administrators; the firm likewise called on the administration to help settle the strike. How were the administrators to respond?
