While there is no definite relationship between the organization of interests and the system of wage regulation, these labour relation dimensions may have different effects on performance. The differentiation between collective bargaining, coverage, centralization, bargaining coordination, and its government capacity are simplified as follows: centralization and coordination do not co-vary but performance values coordination more. Along with this notion, horizontal coordination — bargaining on behalf of different jobs and sectors — should be differentiated with vertical coordination which involves ranking. The distinction between horizontal and vertical coordination lies in the difference between macroeconomic coordination and bargaining governability. Governability or state action on procedural regulation may also affect performance through the bargaining process.

Keywords:   collective bargaining, horizontal bargaining coordination, vertical bargaining coordination, macroeconomic coordination, bargaining governability, state intervention, procedural regulation
