The aim is the investigation of: interactions between union delegates and top management; adoption of organizational and HRM practices; linkages between industrial relations, innovations, and firm performances. The analysis suggests a role played by industrial relations in stimulating organizational changes. Industrial relations are also important for firm performances: the linkage proves to be mediated by positive effects of informative, consultative and bargaining practices on organizational changes.
