III. The Post-War Methodological Shift. The Bargaining Theory of Wages: John Davidson was the propounder of this theory. According to this theory, the fixation of wages depends on the bargaining power of workers/trade unions and of employers. If workers are stronger in bargaining process, then wages tends to be high. In case, employer plays a stronger role, then wages tends to be low.

The Theory of Wages is a book by the British economist John R. Hicks published in (2nd ed., ). It has been described as a classic microeconomic statement of wage determination in competitive markets.

This paper addresses two questions. First, under what circumstances will a centralized wage-bargaining system offer higher output and employment than a decentralized system.

Second, what is the relationship between the degree of wage centralization and inflation. The paper argues that centralized wage setting may offer worse outcomes, despite the existence of a negative.

Trade Unions are organisations of workers that seek through collective bargaining with employers to protect and improve the real incomes of their members, provide job security, protect workers against unfair dismissal and provide a range of other work-related services including support for people claiming compensation for injuries sustained in a job.

Abstract. This paper is an introductory survey of work on the economic theory of trade union behaviour. It concentrates on recent contributions to the literature, sets out a number of central results and ideas, and speculates on future topics for research.

The starting point of the paper is that trade unions engage in substitution once certain targets have been met. This implies that a priority-based or hierarchical model might be a better approximation to union behaviour.

This model requires a two-part union utility function which changes when a satisfactory (or target) level of the priority variable (e.g.

the wage rate) is met. Bargaining Theory, Trade Unions, and Industrial Strike Activity", American Economic Review LIX, The Microeconomic Theory of the Trade Union, A Synthesis, ().

The Theory of Trade Union Wage Policy, (). The Tie between Wages and Employment. A union security agreement is a contractual agreement, usually part of a union collective bargaining agreement, in which an employer and a trade or labor union agree on the extent to which the union may compel employees to join the union, and/or whether the employer will collect dues, fees, and assessments on behalf of the union.

struct formal analytical models of unions as wage-fixing institutions. The pioneering first step was made by John Dunlop () in his book Wage Determination under Trade Unions.

Borrowing from the microeconomic theory of the firm, Dunlop modeled the union as an economic organiza-tion that seeks to maximize some objective, such as the wage bill.
