Collective Bargaining Arrangements Closed Shops And Relative Pay


  • Stewart, Mark B.


This paper uses establishment-level data to examine the impact on union/nonunion pay differentials of the industrial relations setting in which bargaining takes place. The pre-entry closed shop is found to be of prime importance for the pay of both skilled and semiskilled manual workers. For skilled workers, and for semiskilled workers in larger establishments, the differentials are found to be insignificantly different from zero in the absence of a pre-entry closed shop.
