Trade Union Wage Agreement

Negotiations on the way to the top bring new knowledge about the impact of collective bargaining systems on employment, job quality and inclusion in the labour market and examine their renewed role in a changing world of work. The report provides a useful resource for policy makers, unions and employers` organizations to learn how collective bargaining can work better for all in the future. Note: The results are based on olS (Squares ordinary least) regressions in the hourly wage of working time protocol on hourly work productivity in different sectors. Regressions include campaign year decoys. Coordination is considered high for a country if it is considered high in the sample most years. Finally, the role of collective bargaining for labour market performance also depends on the functioning of the institutional system. Chapter 2 has shown that collective bargaining systems differ considerably in OECD countries, although they have similar characteristics. For example, systems in the Netherlands and Portugal4, or australia and the United States, although formally similar in many respects, differ considerably in their operation. The main elements used in this chapter to characterize collective bargaining systems are the degree of coverage, the degree of negotiation, the degree of flexibility and the role of wage coordination: the coverage of collective agreements – the proportion of workers covered by collective agreements – linked to membership in signatory employers` and trade union organisations, but also to the extension of agreements to other companies and workers in one sector. b) Informal centralisation of collective bargaining at the industrial level by a powerful and monopolistic trade union confederation This section has so far focused on the dispersion of wages within the different types of collective agreements, i.e. the dispersion of wages between workers who are not covered by collective agreements and the dispersion of wages between conventional workers. The results can be interpreted as illustrating what would happen to wage inequality if, in a country, collective bargaining moved from non-existent coverage to full coverage or full coverage to uncovered coverage.

Of course, it looks extreme. With regard to less extreme scenarios, it is also necessary to take into account the pay gaps that may exist between employees and employees who are covered by collective agreements and those who are not. Such pay gaps are sometimes referred to as conventional wage bonuses.
