It is concluded that an industrys bargaining structure is not arbitrary or accidental, but is shaped by attempts by the participants in collective bargaining to adjust as best they can to their environment. The analysis, however, is static, while many of the emphasized variables--scale of operations, the geographic scope of the market, seller concentration and so on--change over time. The nature of corresponding adjustments in bargaining structure suggest the degree of rigidity or flexibility present in collective bargaining. The more easily observable structural elements, i.e., the type and scope of bargaining units and the degree of similarity in contractual wage-fringe adjustments, are stressed. Author
