In analysing the overall statistical fit of the models used in studying the performance effects of the distinct labour relations dimensions, six criteria involving statistical significance, F-tests, coefficient signs, the coefficient of determination (R2), the adjusted R2 for auxiliary runs, and an autoregressive term have been used to account for the presence of autocorrelation. This chapter looks into the mixed conclusions derived from the dual-chain causality attributed to the performance of labour relations. Aside for policy implications, this chapter presents the conceptual and theoretical conclusions that can be arrived at after comparing the different models concerning the relative importance of the distinct dimensions as factors of performance, the need to differentiate between bargaining centralization and bargaining coordination, and the reconsideration of the explanatory power of the hypotheses on performance effects.

Keywords:   statistical fit, statistical criteria, dual-chain causality, distinct dimensions, labour relations, performance, bargaining centralization, bargaining coordination
