Unionization and fringe benefits
Ernest B. Akyeampong

Wages and salaries are largely determined by the interaction of supply and demand for labour, and by general economic conditions. In contrast, insurance and pension plan coverage are provided primarily at the discretion of the employer, often in response to demands from organized labour. This being so, one would expect coverage rates in these plans to be higher for unionized workers.
