An analysis of union presence focusing only on union membership can be misleading, particularly so for European countries. Ch. 4 examines wider issues of union presence, including forms of bargaining (centralization and coordination of bargaining) and issues of coverage of collective agreements. Two key questions are addressed. First, what do unions do besides bargain over wages? Second, how do unions make their presence felt beyond mere density statistics (‘excess coverage’)?

Keywords:   collective agreements, coverage, excess coverage, forms of bargaining, union presence
