On the Economic Effects of Multiple Unionism

Abstract

In a recent paper, Stephen Machin, Mark B. Stewart, and John Van Reenan (1993), using establishment-level data for the United Kingdom, find that, ceteris paribus, plants with multiunionism and separate bargaining arrangements pay higher wages than either those in which different unions bargain jointly or those in which there is a single union. In this paper, the author offers a theoretical interpretation of this result within the framework of the Henrik Horn and Asher Wolinsky (1988) analysis of worker substitutability and patterns of unionization. Copyright 1995 by The editors of the Scandinavian Journal of Economics.
