Since the study takes on power as a structural property, this chapter deals with organized power. Organized power is derived primarily and secondarily, from membership strength and resources extracted from third parties respectively. Mutual recognition in collective bargaining has heightened the power of organized business and labor and collective agreements may be used to raise resources. This chapter discusses membership density as one of the main sources of primary associational power and how corporatist regulation can be a key source of secondary associational power. Also, the chapter contains a discussion about the implications of the primary and secondary associational powers on unions and employer associations through analysing mathematical models.

Keywords:   power, structural property, organized power, membership, unions, employer associations, mathematical models, determinants
