Abstract

This paper uses the Social Change and Economic Life Initiative (1986) data set to provide new estimates for the female union wage gap for Britain. The joint endogeneity of trade union and full-time/part-time employment status is addressed within the econometric framework of a bivariate sample selection model. The mean unconditional union "mark-up" estimate for female full-time workers is estimated at 14.6 percent with the comparable estimate for part-time female workers estimated at 15.3 percent.
