John Addison is the Chair in Economics at Durham University (U.K.) and Professor of Economics at University of South Carolina professorship. His research includes Outsourcing, The European labor market, Unions and economic performance, Economic analysis of job security, Employee leasing and temporary employment contracts and Works councils and economic performance in Germany. He has published widely in leading journals including American Economic Review, Labour Economics, Industrial Relations and Journal of Labor Research.
At the level of theory, the effect of collective bargaining on innovation is contested. The large proponderance of the U.S. evidence clearly points to adverse effects, but other-country experience suggests that certain industrial relations systems, or the wider regulatory apparatus, might even tip the balance in favor of unions. Our pooled cross section and difference-in-differences estimates provide some weak evidence that German collective bargaining inhibits innovation. However, in conjunction with workplace representation, there is the suggestion that it might actually foster innovative activity.
