The union impact on hospital wages and fringe benefits
This paper uses 1977 data from a national probability sample of 1,200 hospitals to estimate the effect of unions on wages and fringe benefits in four occupations: registered nurses, practical nurses, secretaries, and housekeepers. The results show that unionization has a significant impact on wages that increases with the length of time collective bargaining has been in effect at the individual hospital. The overall wage effect of unions is about 8% for both types of nurses and 11 to 12% for secretaries and housekeepers employed in hospitals. The authors also estimate an equation for hospitalwide fringe benefits, which shows that such benefits are positively related to the percent of full-time employees in the four occupations covered by union contracts.
