    Abstract

    En el presente artículo se analizan los factores que influyen en la determinación de los salarios pactados en la negociación colectiva de ámbito sectorial en España. Los salarios pactados presentan importantes diferencias entre convenios para trabajadores productivamente similares, resultando dichas diferencias muy similares para diferentes tipos de trabajadores y a lo largo del tiempo. La estructura de salarios pactados presenta características difícilmente conciliables con un enfoque competitivo del mercado de trabajo, tales como la elevada influencia que ejercen en la determinación de los salarios pactados factores como la rama de actividad y el territorio de referencia de los convenios, o la duración de la jornada de trabajo. The aim of this article is to analyze the structure of wages agreed in sectoral collective agreements in Spain and the factors that influence wage determination in collective bargaining. The major findings are that substantial wage differentials among collective agreements exist and are relatively stable over time; and that the pattern of wage differentials is very similar for different kind of workers. The results obtained indicate that the industry and territory where a collective agreement has effect are the main explaining factors of wage variability. The differentials do not seem to be consistent with competitive explanations of the labour markets.
