Title: Productivity and trade unions in British manufacturing industry 1973-85
Authors: Denny, Kevin

Date: May-1993
Abstract: This paper uses panel data on British manufacturing industries between 1973 and 1985 to examine the relationship between productivity and labour organisation. It is shown that the precise relationship between unions and productivity levels is difficult to pin down. There is some evidence of a negative relationship further as does controlling for endogeneity. We also find some evidence that industrial concentration is associated with higher levels of measured productivity.
