Unions, within-workplace job cuts and job security guarantees.
Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics and Political Science, London, UK.
Using data from the Workplace Employment Relations Survey 1998, this paper shows that unionisation increased the probability of within-workplace job cuts and the incidence of job security guarantees. As theory predicts, both are more prevalent among market-sector workplaces with higher union density and multi-unionism. Expectations that these effects would be more muted in the public sector were also confirmed.
