Zusammenfassung

This paper presents structural estimates for a bargaining model which nests
the right-to-manage, the efficient wage bargaining, the seniority and the standard neoclassical labor demand model as special cases. In contrast to most existing models, our
approach accounts for heterogeneous skill groups which differ in terms of productivity
and representation in the bargaining process through union preferences. The paper introduces the concept of 'virtual' firms which allows us to (i) test the efficient contract model against models implying that firms operate on the labor demand curve and to (i) overcome a potential misspecification of firms' output markets.
Estimates of structural parameters are obtained from a novel cross-section of German firms of the business related service sector which includes information on skill-specific wage rates at the firm level. Central results of this paper are that unions do care about both wages and employment in the bargaining process and that firms operate on the
contract curve. The bargaining power of unions in East Germany turns out to be much
weaker than in West Germany.
