Item description for Trade Unions and Collective Bargaining in The Netherlands (Tinbergen Institute Research) by Rob Van De Wijngaert...
Only twenty years ago economists believed that the problem of modelling trade union behavior was almost intractable. Recently the economic theory of trade unions has experienced a remarkable revival. This study focuses on modern theories of collective bargaining. It addresses the problem whether these theories constitute useful and appropriate tools for analyzing the impact of trade unions on the wage formation process in The Netherlands. The Dutch industrial relations and labor market institutions may impose certain restriction on the applicability of collective bargaining theory. The study analyzes the way in which the outcome of bargaining is affected by the linking mechanism between private sector wages and unemployment benefits. It also discusses the relatively long duration of wage negotations. Furthermore, it couples the typical consensus attitude of the labor market p parties to wage bargaining and the low record of industrial disputes in The Netherlands.
