Unions and the Macro-Economy

This research proposes to examine the relationship between unionization in Canada and Canadian rates of employment, unemployment, and the distribution of earned income. Particular attention will be paid to the institutional environment in which unions and collective bargaining exist. The problem to be explored is the way in which the institutional environment (such as laws governing collective bargaining rights) has shaped the effect of unionization on the Canadian macro-economy and consequently affected the employment and income opportunities of working Canadians.
