Four bargaining regimes can be distinguished: (i) company level bargaining, (ii) industry level bargaining, (iii) mandatory extension of an industry agreement, and (iv) no collective bargaining. Acknowledging firms' bargaining regime, we find small differences between the four regimes, and certainly no distinction between “covered” and “uncovered” firms.
