This chapter examines the impact of unions' structure and strategy on specific labour outcomes. In particular, the results of Shunto wage bargaining rounds are analysed for specific roren federations at Toyota, Nissan, and Matsushita. There is systematic evidence that the dispersion in settlements has increased over time in all cases. The chapter also examines how increasingly diverse working conditions were introduced, with specific reference to the Matsushita Group and the NTT Group. In both cases, there is a clear trade-off between retaining lifetime employment and retaining income security.

Keywords:   union strategy, union structure, Shunto wage bargaining, Toyota, Nissan, Matsushita, NTT Group, lifetime employment
