|Title:||Collective bargaining towards mutual flexibility and security goals in large internationalized companies - Why do institutions (still) matter?||Authors:||Paolucci, Valentina; Marginson, Paul||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12257||Date:||9-Jul-2020||Online since:||2021-06-18T15:49:36Z||Abstract:||This paper examines the potential of collective bargaining to generate mutually advantageous flexibility and security outcomes at firm level. By focusing attention on actors’ negotiating capacity at sites in Denmark and Italy of four large chemical-pharmaceutical companies, it provides a nuanced, comparative explanation. The findings demonstrate that, across countries, differences in actors’ capacity and negotiated outcomes are attributable to the stability and depth of collective bargaining institutions. Within country differences are accounted for by the organizational resources (internal democracy, external links and pro-activity) of local trade unions, which condition their capacity to induce management to negotiate outcomes which benefit both parties.||Item notes:||Corrigenda available at: https://doi.org/10.1111/irj.12304||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley||Journal:||Industrial Relations Journal||Volume:||51||Issue:||4||Start page:||329||End page:||350||Copyright (published version):||2020 Brian Towers (BRITOW) and John Wiley & Sons||Keywords:||Flexibility and security; Power resources; Collective bargaining||DOI:||10.1111/irj.12301||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||0019-8692||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
