Explorations in Low Pay, Collective Bargaining and Economic Mobility.
Doeringer, Peter B.
Trade unions and collective bargaining can shape the compensation and opportunities for advancement of workers. The economic outcome at the work place of union activity affects compensation levels, lifetime economic advancement, and the structure of employment. The success or failure of trade unions often depend on the manipulation of economic constraints outside the bargaining relationship, such as control over entry into the labor market, restrictions on non-union competition, and regulation of product markets. While unionization generally raises earnings, its effects are particularly strong for poorly educated workers and black males. Unions stabilize work through systematic assignment of apprentices, more regular employment of older workers, redistribution from the senior to the less senior, and the reduction of voluntary turnover.
