Individual Contracts, Bargaining and Union Membership
MetadataShow full item record
Recent court cases have considered, but not conclusively addressed, whether individual contracts lead to loss of union membership. This paper examines this question, analyzing relevant data from surveys, case studies and the courts. It concludes that shifts from collective bargaining to individual contracts will induce employees to leave a union, and that the magnitude of the effect varies.
