Underemployment, Capital Irreversibility and Growth under Trade Unionism
In an unionized OLG model, it is shown that steady-state underutilization of labour and equipment can be due to the combinaison of the following elements : (i) Irreversibility of capital, technology and skill decision, (ii) Firm specific shocks on productivity. The presence of unions is neither sufficient nor necessary for having unemployment. The result of Devereux and Lockwood (1991) that union power affects positively the capital stock in general equilibrium does not always hold under capital irreversibility.
