The quality of industrial relations and unemployment around the world

Abstract

Using data from 69 countries for the years 2000 to 2003, we find that more cooperative industrial relations are likely to reduce the unemployment rate among the total labor force as well as among female and young workers. Furthermore, they appear to lower the share of long-term unemployed in the total number of unemployed.
