Trade Union Merger Strategies

Amalgamating partners' negotiating powers are taken to be a function of their interdependence. On this basis, the amalgamations studied are divided into three groups: dominant partner unions' negotiations conducted under competitive conditions; dominant partners unions' negotiations in the absence of competitive bids; and balanced partner unions' negotiations in the absence of competitive bids. Dominant partner amalgamation negotiations are found to be similar to transfer negotiations. In contrast, balanced partner amalgamation negotiations are more complex and generally provide the opportunity to transform the partner unions' internal organization.
