Abstract (Translated): 
This paper presents empirical evidence of the effect of collective bargaining and unions on wages and its dispersion in Argentina.To this end,we use a recent and novel household survey and the decompositions method. Our results show that collective agreement coverage increases wages mainly in the lower quantiles.In this way,it reduces the log wage variance by impacting in the left tail of the distribution. Additionally,the alternative measure of union membership presents results in the same direction.
