[New collective bargaining contracts and gender wage differentials]
AbstractThe paper measures the gender wage differentials among members of the Icelandic public sector union federation Association of Academics (BHM). The collective bargaining agremeents of the member unions have changed dramatically during the last 15 years while the agreements have also been decentralized. The paper shows that although the gender wage differential has fallen from 1994 to 2007 it is still significant. The base wage gender wage differential is smaller than the gender wage differential when it comes to total earnings.
