This chapter provides a survey of econometric studies on trade unions and collective bargaining in Germany. Traditionally, these studies have examined the determinants of trade union membership and collective bargaining coverage. Recent research has a strong focus on the implications of collective bargaining for wages, flexibility and the performance of firms. Specific attention is paid to opening clauses and company-level pacts for employment and competitiveness.
