  • Uwe Jirjahn

Abstract

Der vorliegende Artikel gibt einen Überblick über arbeitsmarktökonomische Studien, die sich in den letzten dreißig Jahren mit Gewerkschaften und Tarifvertragsbeziehungen in Deutschland beschäftigt haben. Der Überblick zeigt, dass diese Studien ein sehr vielfältiges Spektrum an Fragestellungen untersuchen. Hierzu zählen die Determinanten der Gewerkschaftsmitgliedschaft und der Tarifbindung von Betrieben sowie die Entwicklung der Verhandlungsmacht der Gewerkschaften im Zeitablauf. Ein besonderes Augenmerk schenken arbeitsmarktökonomische Studien den Konsequenzen der Tarifvertragsbindung für Löhne, betriebliche Anpassungsprozesse und die betriebliche Leistungsfähigkeit. Jüngste Untersuchungen beschäftigen sich zudem mit den Determinanten und Konsequenzen der Nutzung von Öffnungsklauseln und betrieblichen Bündnissen.
