Although the massive literature on the effects of unionism ought to identify some central tendency, the results of this research are often quoted selectively. This book therefore aims to provide a systematic and synthetic review of the global research on the economic effects of unions and collective bargaining at the micro- and macroeconomic levels. Earlier drafts of the manuscript were shared extensively among peers and at meetings, including a major international conference in Geneva in November 2000. This book incorporates recent developments in the literature, as well as feedback and valuable additions from many international organizations and workers’/employers’ representatives as well as World Bank staff. Nevertheless, the literature on labor standards, collective bargaining, and trade unions is developing rapidly in many directions and we apologize for any omissions. We would like to thank, without implicating for any errors, Gordon Betcherman, Amit Dar, Peter Fallon, Morley Gunderson, Robert Holzmann, Steen Jorgensen, William Martin, Martin Rama, Sabine Schlemmer-Schulte, and Vania Sena for comments on early versions of the manuscript. We would also like to thank the World Bank’s Office of the Publisher for its advice on improving this publication. The study was supported by the Social Protection Department of the World Bank’s Human Development Network and by Danish Trust Funds.
