Manning, Alan (1991) The effects of union density of wages and employment: a dynamic monopoly union model. CEPDP, 20. Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics and Political Science, London, UK.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper looks at wage and employment determination in a dynamic model where some workers, e.g. non-union members, continue to work in the event of a dispute. It shows that both wages and employment may be a non-monotonic function of union density. It can also explain the situation in which unions are sustainable in the long-run. The model is applied to the analysis of the closed shop and some aspects of recent British trade union legislation.
