Abstract

This paper investigates the patterns of bargaining in a multi-unit firm in the presence of labor unions coordination activities. It derives the bargaining regimes arising as sub-game perfect equilibria, considering both simultaneous and sequential games where parties choose whether to coordinate wage negotiations. It shows that unions' coordination costs may attenuate the conflict of interests between bargaining parties as regards the centralization level at which negotiations should take place.
