Title: The impact of trade shocks on collective wage bargaining agreements

Author(s): Juan Carluccio, Denis Fougère and Erwan Gautier

Publication Date: May 2016

Keyword(s): collective bargaining, exports and offshoring

Programme Area(s): International Trade and Regional Economics and Labour Economics

Abstract: We study the impact of international trade on firm-level wage bargaining using a unique administrative firm-level dataset for French manufacturing. Exports have a positive effect on the probability of signing firm-level wage agreements, while offshoring has no significant effect. Results are consistent with the predictions of rent-sharing models of the export wage-premium.
