Unions and Workplace Closure in Britain, 1990-1998
This paper assesses union effects on workplace closure in the private sector in Britain between 1990 and 1998 using panel data from the 1990-98 Workplace Employee Relations Survey. On average, unions raised the chances of workplace closure in Britain in the 1990s, in contrast to the 1980s. However, the size and statistical significance of union effects differ across dimensions of unionization and type of workplace. Furthermore, the results are sensitive to the definition of workplace closure. Copyright Blackwell Publishing Ltd/London School of Economics 2004.
