ABSTRACT
This article discusses models of unionization in Canada and a bargaining model, which indicates how time loss from labor disputes can measure trade union aggressiveness. Union power can be evaluated in terms of union strike and non-strike activity, which are closely related to unions' ability to coerce employers into higher wage settlements. Topics include flaws in the Hines model, bargaining theory, strike decisions, empirical analysis, prediction models, and the limitations of using a time-loss variable for estimating the wage adjustment process.
